Root fertilization is important to ensure that your trees and shrubs are getting the nutrients they need to encourage healthy growth and to fight off disease and pests. Fertilization is especially important for landscaped trees in urban areas, where soil nutrient depletion is extremely common. With deep root fertilization you can restore the nutrient balance in the soil and enjoy more beautiful, healthy, and vibrant trees.

What is Deep Root Fertilization?

Deep Root Fertilizing works by injecting a balanced mixture of minerals and nutrients directly into the soil around the root systems of your trees to promote this absorption. For most trees, this means applying the fertilizer directly below the surface of the soil. However, bigger trees require a slightly more complex approach. The most common way of injecting these fertilizers is with the use of a special “soil needle”. The liquid fertilizer solution is pumped through that needle deep into the soil.

Why Do Trees Need to Be Fertilized?

Trees rely on their root systems to obtain nutrients and minerals from the soil. If there are soil deficiencies, it is challenging for trees to get the sustenance they require for healthy growth.

As organic material is broken down over time with the help of micro-organisms, essential nutrients and minerals are added back into the soil for plant roots to absorb. In many metropolitan areas, the essential organic matter needed to feed the trees – things like leaves, grass clippings, and garden waste – are cleaned up and taken away…which means essential nutrients are also being taken away. With the help of deep root fertilization, those vital nutrients and minerals are supplemented to support tree growth.

Best Time to Fertilize Trees

For most applications, deep root fertilization is best performed in early fall or early spring.

Early fall is the most common time for Deep Root Fertilization services to be performed in Toronto and other parts of Southern Ontario. This allows an adequate amount of time for the roots to absorb the newly added nutrients before the freezing temperatures arrive and avoids the stress placed on trees by extreme summer conditions.

By adding fertilizer in early spring, your trees can take full advantage of the additional nutrients for new growth. This new growth also needs time to harden off before the harsh temperatures of winter arrive in Toronto.

Testimonials

Extremely happy with the service provided to grind a large stump. Very professional. Excellent communication and the best experience I encountered in this industry. Cleanup was also done even though I was willing to handle it myself in this case. Will use them for any future tree related work. Highly recommended.I will refer this business to others because like others I have been fooled by other company high ratings only to receive horrible service, added costs and more work for me. This one is authentic. I had bad experiences and poor follow through with too many other businesses.
Alan Nanut
Allways Service was professional, friendly and efficient. Extremely happy with their service.I got a few estimates from different companies and some of them just wanted to make a quick buck and remove an entire tree. Joel listened to our needs and budget and gave a fair estimate for what he could do to make our backyard safe.On the day of the job Joel and Shawn did an amazing job planning their work, trimming the trees and making our backyard a safe space for our daughter. I really admire what they do climbing so high up in the the trees and the skills required to do so. I highly recommend them and would use them again.They are the home tree service you didn’t know you needed until you’re dodging falling branches.
Leila Lirazan
We had two large stumps from a double oak that we needed to have cut further and ground down. The owner (Marian) explained the process clearly and gave a detailed quote, and a week later his stump grinder, Yora, did the job quickly and efficiently, despite running into some unexpected problems. Surprisingly, there was a large chuck of metal bar between the two stumps which dulled his chainsaw blade, in addition to a number of rocks, but these didn't stop Yora, and now we have clear ground and a pile of sawdust where the stumps were. He also spread some of he sawdust under our spruce trees. I would highly recommend this company.

Very professional team. did a great job. prices are reasonable.
Keith Karunanayake
We lost part of a large maple in the big May storm with half the tree on my garage and half precariously standing. Entwined in the standing portion were phone and cable wires for many families on the street.We called the day of the storm and they answered immediately with an inspection the next day. We had to wait for a couple of weeks for the City to permit us taking down the standing portion hoping it wouldn’t fall on its own, and when they did a crew arrived promptly and carefully removed the tree without touching a single wire!The whole operation was complete in three hours, and they even swept the back yard and the roofs of two garages.The service was extremely professional, timely and it was the best quote we received. I can’t say enough about the service.
Lian Zerafa

FAQs

How do I know if my trees are suffering from nutrient deficiencies?

You may notice things like new yellow/white leaves, misshapen or smaller than usual new growth. Die back, leaf shrivelling or early leaf falling can also be signs of nutrient deficiencies.

Is Deep Root Fertilization better than applying fertilizer to the top of the soil?

Topical fertilizer application can be effective. However, more often than not, surrounding plant life (such as grass) absorbs the newly added nutrients before they ever reach the root system of trees. Deep Root Fertilization is effective because of its targeted application.

Where does Deep Root Fertilization need to be injected?

Typically, we inject the fertilizer solution around 4-6 inches below the soil surface. We ensure there is enough solution to fully reach the entire root system beneath the span of the canopy. Trees have differing sizes of root systems, though, so where the treatment is applied can vary.
