Give your trees a shot of life!
In our urban environments, trees are forced to compete with our lawns and other plants for nutrients. While forest trees benefit from soil rich with organic matter, we frequently remove fallen leaves and other organic matter that provides sources of nutrients for our trees in urban environments. This starves them of the necessary nutrients to reach their full potential.
Deep root fertilization is a valuable technique that Beswick's ISA-certified arborists use to deliver nutrients and soil treatments directly to the root system of your tree, promoting overall health, growth and strong roots.
When is the best time to fertilize my tree or shrub?
Beswick performs 2 applications of fertilizer throughout the year:
In the spring...
Spring fertilization provides the essential nutrients at a time when trees are actively entering their growing season.
Ensures that nutrients are readily available when the tree needs them the most, helping prevent diseases and infections in the humid summer months.
Can lead to lush, vibrant foliage.
In the fall...
Helps build your tree's nutrient reserve during the cold winter months.
Promotes root growth during the winter.
For fruit-bearing trees, fall fertilization can stimulate flowering and fruit production in the following growing season.
What nutrients are in a typical injection of deep root fertilizer?
The nutrient composition of deep root fertilizers can vary, but a well-balanced fertilizer typically includes the following primary nutrients:
Nitrogen (N) - Nitrogen is crucial for the development of foliage, stems and overall plant growth. It plays a key role in the synthesis of chlorophyll, the green pigment responsible for photosynthesis. Adequate nitrogen promotes healthy leaves and enhances a tree's ability to capture and utilize sunlight.
Phosphorus (P) - Phosphorus is essential for root development, flowering and fruiting. It contributes to the energy transfer within the plant, aiding in the formation of DNA, RNA and other vital molecules.
Potassium (K) - Potassium is involved in various physiological processes, including water uptake, enzyme activation and photosynthesis. It helps trees withstand environmental stress, enhances disease resistance and contributes to overall plant vigor.
What can I expect during a tree or shrub fertilization?
Our plant health care technicians use specialized equipment to inject liquid fertilizer into the root zone about 6-12 inches beneath the surface. We follow the drip line of the tree, making sure we do a full 360 around the root zone.
Note - you do not need to be home for your fertilizer application. A Beswick tree care professional will leave a card in your mailbox indicating that we were on your property and that we completed your deep root feed.
Great professional service. Great price and job well done. The staff was efficient and quick and cleaned up after they were done. I will book them again for more work. I recommend Beswick Tree Service.
The service crew were very professional from the moment they introduced themselves, they did a terrific job and left my place looking clean & tidy. I would certainly recommend Beswick to anyone and will keep you in top consideration if I ever need more work done at my home.
The arborist (Nicole) and the team (lead by Steve) were very knowledgeable and pleasure to work with. They tackled a large project on a Silver Maple. They took precautions to protect the lawn as they brought in a 60 foot boom and a crane to remove the massive logs. The drops were well controlled. The use of a chipper made quick work of the brush. Excellent pricing. I would use them again.
Professional work and well executed. We are very satisfied customers! We highly recommend Beswick Tree Service.
Excellent communication. Great crew. Job done exactly as we requested. Would highly recommend this company!
We have used Beswick for many projects at our home and highly recommend them. They are friendly, conscientious, efficient and always leave the job site in good order. They are very knowledgeable as well and we know we will receive excellent service.
I've used this company several times over the years to great success for trimming and tree removals. There was a small mishap once and they promptly and fairly addressed the issue. Nothing but good things to say about this company. Highly recommended.
From start to finish, this company was a delight to deal with. I don’t have a single complaint and I highly recommend Beswick Tree Service!
The guys arrived on time and finished the tall cedar trimming as requested. They did a great job cleaning up the site including trimmings on my neighbours lawn. It was the best quote and we are very happy with the service and would definitely go to them again. Thank you.
