What is Deep Root Feeding?

Trees are a valuable investment to your property. Research has shown that mature trees can increase the value of your home or business up to 20 percent. They are also an important natural resource. So it’s important to insure they receive the nutrients it needs to grow strong and healthy.

A trees needs are constantly changing due to weather and environmental factors. Deep root feeding helps ensure trees are receiving the nutrients it needs to flourish.

The process of deep root feeding starts by injecting water, fertilizers, insecticides and other soil enhancers directly into a tree’s root zone, which is typically no more than 12 inches deep and where most nutrients are absorbed. The process helps break up soil creating an easier path for air, water and nutrients to reach the root zone.

Deep root feeding is environmentally friendly because it reduces erosion, evaporation and fertilizer run-off. Not to mention, it promotes healthy and strong root growth.
