The Tree MD understands the unique needs of all species of trees. Each and every species has specific nutritional needs which need to be met to ensure health and longevity. Scheduled fertilization using proven techniques are the most effective way to keep trees healthy.  Delivering nutrients at the right time and in the correct quantities insures optimum essential nutrients are available during shoot development in the spring and then during root  storage activities in the fall. Most if the trees nutritional uptake is conducted by the tertiary root system located in the upper layer of soil, usually within twelve inches below grade. This fact contradicts the visualization that occurs when the term "deep root fertilization "is used. In fact the practice of delivering fertilizer through a prepared hole in the soil is not the most efficient technique but it does provide a concentration of fertilizer at the location for a longer period of time. Broadcast fertilization is preferred for greater absorption rates but the effects of leaching are accelerated and more frequent treatments are required. Other methods include foliar applications and vascular inoculations.

In all studies, a long as a tree has the nutrients it needs to thrive, grow, and fight disease the stronger and safer a tree will be. The Tree MD understands where the ideal “feeder roots” are located for each tree we see. We can identify the most ideal locations and quantities and recommended type of fertilizer to apply deep, broadcast or injection fertilization to ensure you get the best quality and value for your money.

In addition to deep tree root fertilization, surface applications can be used as supplementation. Again, The Tree MD understands the unique needs of all trees which grow in Florida. There are specific times of year when fertilization of trees is most effective. It is very easy to overlook the nuances and details of tree fertilization without deep seated expertise. The Tree MD can make your tree fertilization job easy and effortless.
