Even in the best soils, applying a slow-release fertilizer can help replace nutrients trees lose over time. Davey's advanced fertilizer is formulated to maximize the nutrients' effects on your trees.
Trees and shrubs thrive without the addition of fertilizer in their natural, wooded environment because the soils are rich with organic matter from the forest.
In our backyards, trees are forced to compete with our lawns and other plants, and we frequently remove fallen leaves, organic matter, and other potential sources of nutrients that would naturally have helped them flourish.
Applying a slow-release tree fertilizer is one of the most important things needed to replace those nutrients throughout the year. Especially for newly planted trees.
In this video, Dr. Dan Herms, Vice President of Research and Development at the Davey Institute, shares why we should fertilize trees.
