Why do trees need fertilizing?
How do you know your tree needs fertilization?
What are the different types of fertilizing methods?
- Compost is made of dead and decaying plant matter like dead leaves, grass, small plants, etc. It acts as the natural replenishment trees get in the forest.
- Organic Fertilizers are composed of dead and decaying plant and animal matter but are not decomposed like compost. They do not harm the environment but take time to get absorbed by the trees.
- Inorganic Fertilizers are man-made through chemical processes and are in pure chemical compound form. If not used judiciously, they can harm the environment but are preferred by many due to their quick-absorbing properties.
How to fertilize a tree?
What is the best time to fertilize?
Fertilizing in particular seasons also has its benefits. Fertilizing in fall helps regain the nutrients lost during summers and helps the tree survive harsh winters. But ensure that the soil is not frozen when you fertilize.
Fertilizing in spring promotes a tree’s growth far more quickly as it is the season for a new life. It also provides strength to the tree to survive in the upcoming summer months.
