Deep Root Injection
Deep root injection, or sometimes deep root fertilization, is a common practice among landscapers. But what does it mean? And why do you need to fertilize your trees? Many people believe that trees have enough capability to source nutrients from the soil, but this is not true for all trees. In fact, deep root injection is a recommended procedure carried out by arborists to add vital nutrients to the trees for enhanced foliage growth.
Deep root injection is the process of putting fertilizer into the soil through a pipe that is inserted about 8-12 inches deep. Theoretically, most tree roots go deeper beyond the soil layer that has nutrients. That is why you will need to dig deeper into the soil to make sure that you get nutrients to the roots. The fertilization should be done at the right depth as fibrous roots, which are responsible for nutrient absorption, do not go that much deeper. Roots that go deeper into the soil are usually for anchorage or support.
Different trees have different root depths. Only an expert with a deep understanding of this knowledge will, therefore, be able to appropriately carry out deep root injection. Otherwise, it will be a waste of time and resources as you will obviously miss the target. Carlsbad Tree Trimming and Stump Grinding company have such professionals who understand what they do. We don’t use chances but hit the bull’s eye. We have a vast knowledge of tree rooting systems.
Do you need to fertilize your trees?
Trees need some key nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These nutrients may be not within the reach of your trees, or your soil simply have inadequate nutrients as needed by the trees. Trees that do not get enough nutrients have stunted growth and leaves that turn yellowish. The overall effect is that such trees lose their aesthetic value, and your yard won’t be as attractive as you ever wanted it to be. This is why deep root injection is necessary. If you are lucky to have a nutrient-rich lawn, then probably you won’t have to fertilize the trees.
Some people think that deep root injection is not worth it. Our experts will tell you that it is the most honorable thing that you can do to your trees. Simply spreading fertilizer on your lawn is not a good idea as you may end up feeding the useless shrubs and not the trees that you love. Deep root injection ensures that your fertilizer reaches the target and only benefits your trees. Nature can also take the nutrients to the roots but it is way much slower. It will take you a considerable time to notice the difference, or you can miss to notice it at all. We are sure this is not what you want.
