Trees in their natural, wooded environment often thrive because the soils are rich with organic matter from the forest.
Trees in our yards are forced to compete with our lawns and other plants, and frequently struggle with nutrient deficiency. Trees might need a general fertilizer or a special micro-nutrient fertilizer to correct certain deficiencies. Trees can be fertilized several different ways, depending on what your trees may need. Fertilization amends nutrient deficiencies in the soil, increases root growth and offers resistance to drought and disease.
