Deep Root Fertilization

Man, this is getting deep.

Some soils lack all the nutrients your trees need to stay healthy and happy. Malnourished plants can also become more vulnerable to pests and disease. Enter root zone fertilization. This deep treatment can help supplement your trees’ surrounding soil, giving plants the best chance to grow and flourish for years to come.

Deep fertilization treatments not only make roots stronger but also help your trees and shrubs recover more easily from dry spells and reduce the risk of drought injury.

So, what are you waiting for? Save the trees!

  • What is deep root fertilization?

    Deep root fertilization is to provide your tree's root system with a strong reserve of nutrients when the soil it lives in is not quite doing the job! The tree specialists do this by injecting carefully selected minerals and nutrients into the soil around your trees so that they can be easily absorbed by the roots of your tree.

  • Why do trees need deep root fertilization?

    If your tree is growing in very compacted soil nutrients and water is less likely to penetrate the soil and reach the root zone. A sign of this can be if the branches and leaves of your tree show any signs of growth stress (spots on leaves or distorted growth) or severe root damage has occurred.

    If you suspect that a tree needs deep root feeding, Rümi is here to offer professional consultation.

  • How often should I deep root fertilize my tree?

    It is recommended to deep root feed your trees every spring and fall to keep them as healthy as possible. If you only want to commit to treatment once a year, autumn would generally be the recommended time.
