Fertilization services by Treemasters in San Rafael and the Bay Area

Everyone knows eating a balanced diet is essential for good health. The same can be said for your trees and plants. If your soil lacks essential nutrients, your trees will not be as healthy as they should be, leaving them vulnerable to pests or disease. That’s where fertilization services from Treemasters come in.

A well-fertilized soil will make your trees and plants beautiful and promote strong root growth, which can help your trees withstand storms or other natural disasters.

How Do You Know If Your Yard Needs Fertilizer?

Unless you’re already on a fertilization program, it’s highly likely your yard would benefit from professional fertilization treatment. Below are some of the main signs that it may be time to fertilize your soil.

  • Smaller than normal leaves
  • Discolored leaves
  • Lack of new growth or flowers
  • Slow growth
  • Premature falling leaves

How Does Professional Fertilization Work?

Treemasters offers prescriptive fertilization (soil samples sent to a lab) and/or soil nutrition programs like our Comprehensive General Soil Nutrition Program; we add recommended macro and micronutrients relative to tree location. Your arborist will then create a tailed fertilization plan based on the results from the soil sample. 

Instead of overusing traditional chemical fertilizers, Treemasters practices deep root fertilization where we introduce macro and micronutrients in addition to Mycorrhizal Fungi into your soil. This beneficial fungus establishes a symbiotic relationship with tree roots and enhances the tree’s capacity to absorb more of the already available soil nutrients.

Fertilization FAQs

Early spring and late fall are the best times of the year to apply fertilizer. Plants and trees absorb the most nutrients during early spring before they start growing and the fall after the tree or shrubs have gone dormant.

Mature trees should be fertilized every 2-3 years, whereas young trees may need to be fertilized yearly to promote growth.

Before fertilizing, your soil should be tested to determine which nutrients it lacks. The experts at Treemasters are trained to determine the specific fertilizer mixture your soil needs to ensure your trees and plants flourish.

Fertilizer should be applied by a trained professional. While most big box stores sell fertilizer, without testing your soil you could add too much of one mineral while lacking another, which can damage or kill your plants.
