Tree Fertilization, Ed's Tree Service fertilizing tree

Micronutrients are essential to avoid malnourished trees. In populated areas, trees must contend with pollution and soil depletion over the course of their long lives and fertilization can give them a much-needed boost.

We can all use a pick-me-up, and trees are no different. Sometimes a soil test can be helpful to learn about your tree’s health and when it might be time to fertilize.

How Does Tree Fertilization in Gaithersburg, MD Work?

Ed’s Tree Service uses the Mauget Tree Injection process to ensure your tree, whether they are mature trees or young trees, are getting safe and helpful nutrients.

We recommend the Mauget Tree Injection Process to ensure that your trees have adequate micronutrients to stay healthy and strong.

The liquid fertilizer is injected directly into the sapwood at the base of your tree. We use a Stemix micro-injector to deliver a mineral formula designed to stimulate the growth of the tree foliage, trunk, and root system.

We drill a small hole (only 3/16 of an inch in diameter and no deeper than ¾ of an inch) every 6 inches around the base of the tree to insert the fertilizer capsules.

Because the puncture wounds are tiny, the tree recovers quickly and the nutrients are efficiently absorbed into the tree’s sap stream and circulated throughout the tree with no harm. We recommend watering the tree when it is injected to help the process along. 

What Is Tree Fertilization in Gaithersburg, MD like?

Fertilizer is a natural or chemical substance that can help to keep trees and plants healthy and growing by adding nutrients to the soil. There are 2 types of fertilizers and processes…

Chemical-based – These contain nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. Tree professionals can conduct a soil quality test to see what balance of those three chemicals the tree might need. 

Natural – These are usually made up of things like compost, cow manure, or what’s called a “complete fertilizer blend” and these usually release nutrients more slowly than the chemically based fertilizers. 

There is also a slow-release for the amount of fertilizer suggested, and a faster release.
