Many people will take the time to fertilize their flowers and plants and even their grass without giving a second thought to their trees. Although trees seem to survive just fine on their own with only a bit of water to start out, they too will benefit from fertilzing to help them stay healthy and promote vigorous growth. Just like the benefits your plants and grass get from fertilizing, trees can also use the boost in nutrients to support growth, promote lush full green leaves and encourage strong root development and overall health.
The Key components to fertilizer are N-P-K
N is for nitrogen which is responsible for several factors including proper & full leaf growth and color. It also aids in photosynthesis and contributes to overall growth.
P is for Phosphorus which also contributes to photosynthesis but also aids in root development.
K is for Potassium which is important to building proteins in the tree, aids in more photosynthesis and helps with disease resistance and prevention.
