Why Soil is Essential to Optimal Tree Care? Every homeowner wants to have beautiful, healthy trees and plants on their lawn. To do so, you must have healthy soil that nurtures your landscape. Fertilization is just one component of healthy soil; other considerations include the soil’s pH level (or, how acidic or basic the soil is), the nutrients and organic matter that are present in the soil, and how well the soil drains water. Few Northeast Ohio lawns are blessed with optimal soil compositions naturally; fortunately, you can cheat Mother Nature with the help of a certified fertilization professional!
It is very important that you engage a fertilization expert and not try to do it yourself. Soil composition can be delicate, and it is easy for an amateur to make a mistake that ends up harming or killing vegetation. Only certified fertilization professionals have the knowledge and experience required to simulate optimal conditions for tree and plant growth that are found in nature. First, he or she will collect soil samples from your residential property and conduct thorough analyses to determine what, if anything, needs to be altered. The professional will then design a custom treatment plan. Common interventions needed in Northeast Ohio include applying a nitrogen or phosphorous fertilizer. Other treatments can be made to save specific trees; for example, there is a technique called deep root fertilization that injects a high-quality nutrient solution directly into the root zone.
All trees need nutrients to live and thrive. If one or more essential nutrients is missing in the soil, your tree can start to show signs of stress, such as poor growth, discoloration, or prematurely falling leaves. If you suspect that one or more of your trees needs fertilization, don’t hesitate to call a tree care professional for an evaluation.
