Deep-Root Fertilization of Trees

As California’s crippling drought eases, property owners and managers are asking if deep-root fertilization of their trees is still necessary.

The answer is yes. In fact, this post-drought period is the ideal time to employ deep-root fertilization. As abundant rainfall replenishes groundwater, a tree’s root system is better able to absorb nutrients.

Fertilizing is also best done between end of winter and in spring, before warm-weather growth resumes.

The stressful conditions that many trees have experienced in these past few years of drought, still have lingering effects. Bay Area tree specimens are still very susceptible to damaging insects, diseases, and nutrition deficit. Deep-root fertilization is a good method to reinvigorate trees weakened by years of challenging environment.

Performed by inserting a pressurized injector underground within the tree dripline, deep-root fertilization delivers nutrients directly to tree roots. Feeding trees in this manner also enables the soil to retain water, important during California’s dry summers.

Gachina professionals employ two basic types of fertilizer, depending on the condition of the tree:

  • Granular feed, which slowly releases nutrients over a year;
  • Liquid feed, fast-acting and most effective when a tree needs immediate help.

Gachina Landscape Management also offers both synthetic fertilizer and 100% organic compost tea enhanced with Mycorrizae. Mycorrizae are fungi that, once in contact with plant/tree’s root system, will grow in association with the roots in a symbiotic relationship that will benefit the plant/tree by increasing the active absorbing area (water and nutrients) and by defending it from other fungi and nematodes. Our PHC specialists will determine which method and type of deep-root fertilization is appropriate after analyzing the trees and soil on your property.

Gachina provides a wide range of commercial landscape services throughout the Bay Area, including the communities of Oakland, Hayward, Monterey, and Redwood City.

How to Tell if You Need Deep-Root Fertilization of Your Trees

Your trees will benefit from deep-root fertilization when you see the following:

  • Leaves become smaller season after season.
  • Leaf color appears yellowish instead of deep green.
  • Growth slows down.
  • Leaves drop more frequently and off-season.

Your trees may need more than rainfall to recover completely from a record-breaking drought. Call 650-853-0400 today or contact us online to talk with a Gachina Landscape Management staff member about deep-root fertilization of trees on your property.
