Tree Fertilizing & Deep Root Feeding

Annual tree fertilizer treatment helps hedges and trees stay strong and healthy all year. A fertilizer spray and deep root feeding treatments are the best way to both aerate and provide nutrients to trees deep below the surface. While surface fertilizer is helpful, much of the solution is diluted or runs off when it rains. Cody’s Tree Service provides quality deep root feeding services throughout Katy, Fulshear, and Pattison, Texas.

Types of Fertilizer

The type of fertilizer we use differs depending on the soil condition, type of tree or shrub, sunlight, and location of the tree. However, the most common type of all-purpose tree fertilizer typically container a mixture of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. We offer deep root feeding and also surface fertilizer spraying.

  • NPK: Natural Blend of Nitrogen, Potassium & Phosphorous
  • Tree Feeding Fertilizer: Ammonium Sulfate, Sodium Nitrate, and Ammonium Nitrate
  • Spray Fertilizer
  • Deep Root Feeding

We prefer to use natural fertilizers whenever possible because inorganic fertilizers yield no benefit on the soil structure. However, some types of synthetic tree fertilizers are good for large, mature trees like live Oak and Bald Cypress.

Proper Mulching to Retain Moisture & Nutrients

Proper mulching around the base and canopy of the tree helps protect trees from moisture loss and nutrient runoff. Adding organic matter like sawdust, manure, and peat moss can help fortify trees and bushes of all maturity levels.

Slow Release Fertilizer for Young Trees

Adding slow release fertilizer to the surface of young trees is preferred to deep root feeding to avoid burning young tree roots with too much nitrogen. A quick soil test can confirm whether a young tree or hedge is getting the nutrients it needs to thrive and survive through the summer and winter.

Spray Fertilizer & Deep Root Feeding for Mature Trees

Mature trees that are established benefit from what we call a deep root feeding. During this process we use a long fertilizer application pole to poke holes around the base and canopy of the tree and apply nitrogen-rich fertilizer to the roots directly. We apply fertilizer in several areas around the tree because the perforations also help aerate the soil.
