Deep Root Injection
Deep root fertilization is the process of supplementing the soil nutrients so that the trees growing on it can get all the vital minerals needed for their growth. it is particularly necessary for landscaped trees as the soil nutrients may get depleted. When this happens, your tree will start to decline even if there is no sign of infection or pest infestations. Lake Alfred Tree Trimming and Stump Grinding Services have experienced arborists who you can call upon to help you in administering the fertilizer to the trees so that the trees can thrive once again.
In deep root feeding, two major steps are involved. These steps are all technical and require special skills that are gained through decades of practice. Don’t be deceived that by following what you read on the internet and using YouTube tutorials you can effectively do it by yourself. You are not even ready to purchase the equipment and tools that are all used in this process. Why not leave the work to the professional arborists who have the knowledge and skills in handling it?
What is deep root injection all about?
In this section, we will discuss the two basic steps that are needed in this process. These include the preparation of the special liquid mixture and root zone location. Read on to know more about these steps.
Liquid mixture preparation
This is the first step, and it involves another series of steps all of which must be executed correctly. If anything goes wrong here, then the next steps will be a waste of time and resources. The fertilizer mixture is prepared on-site. You can go to the market to purchase exactly what suits the needs of your trees. It is normally done after a thorough examination of all other possibilities. Our arborists will conduct a series of tests on the soil samples to know the exact minerals that the soil is lacking. Based on the result, a formula will be deduced for mixing the right quantities of different minerals that are required by your trees. This results in the mixture that is ready to be supplied to the root zones of your trees.
Root zone location
This is the second and the last step that is equally important. It has to be executed correctly, otherwise, the work done in the first step will be a waste of time and resources. Roots are located deep into the soil. Different tree species have different root systems. This means that you cannot rely on the information for another tree to estimate the root location for the trees in question. Our professionals use technology in determining the exact root location. The liquid mixture prepared in the first step above is then delivered through a pipe that is driven into the soil up to the root zone. The trees will then be able to get all the nutrients.
Deep root injection can be done about twice a year, but if you have a tight budget, then once can also to provided that it is carried out effectively by the professionals.
