The addition of a proper fertilizer not only improves the appearance and condition of trees, but in some cases, enables trees to better withstand insects and diseases. Healthy, mature trees add an average 10 percent to the value of your property and can save 20-50% in energy used for heating while providing a natural habitat for wildlife. A healthy 30” diameter breast height (DBH) tree removes 70 times more air pollution per year than a 3” DBH tree. Fertilizing promotes tree growth. Affordable Tree Care provides Annual Deep Root Fertilization with Davey Arbor Green® PRO. You will be amazed at the results. Call today for an estimate.
Healthy, mature trees add up to 15% to the value of your property. Healthy, mature, well placed trees reduce air conditioning and heating costs by 20% - 50%. Healthy, mature trees naturally absorb carbon dioxide and reduce pollution. Unhealthy trees can become a hazard and cost money to be removed.
Forest trees thrive without the addition of fertilizer because forest soils are rich in humus, which is replenished by the decay of leaves and other organic matter. In contrast, urban forest trees live in soils low in humus and fertility. Leaves and other debris are typically removed interrupting nature's recycling program. The soil nutrients that are utilized in plant growth need to be replenished with supplemental fertilization.
Round 1: This Early Spring application helps to prevent the establishment of crabgrass in turf. We will perform the application prior to crabgrass germination.
Round 2: Broadleaf weeds pop up in the Spring. We actively treat broadleaves with herbicides that include a sticking agent to improve effectiveness and rain-fastness. Proper fertilization will boost grass growth and help it to thicken for a healthier lawn while choking the unwanted weeds out.
Round 3: Proper fertilization is necessary for optimal turf growth and health. Rye and bluegrass lawns in Southeastern Wisconsin typically require 3.5-4.5# of Nitrogen per year per 1,000 sq. ft. to maintain a rich green color. We will make sure to apply as much as your lawn needs for optimal health. (May require more than one application.)
Round 4: For a less stressful Spring, we make sure to address weed presence in early Fall. Weeds that are not taken care of at this time are the weeds that pop first in the Spring!
Round 5: This is the most important fertilization for your turf! This application encourages strong root development during the Fall and also greens up your lawn first thing in the Spring!
