In a forest, trees create their own food or natural fertilizer by shedding their leaves in the fall and by branches naturally decaying on the forest floor. In urban environments, the leaves and branches are cleaned up leaving nothing to return to the soil

Nutrient deficiencies in urban landscapes are one of the leading causes of tree and shrub problems. Business Review today announces residents and business owners in Mississauga, Etobicoke and Oakville Communities can support Canada Health Day by promoting the healthy growth of their trees and shrubs by receiving no charge consultations on the deep root fertilization program that will encourage deep root growth, promote healing of wounds and prune cuts and aid vulnerable trees and shrubs in fighting insects and disease. This slow release fertilizer is very high in nitrogen and will provide between one to three years of fertilization.

    Not supplying trees with proper nutrients makes them more susceptible to the common pests and diseases that lead to the decline of a community’s tree canopy. Unfertilized trees and shrubs can experience stunted growth, slow healing and in some cases eventual death. The deep root fertilization program slowly releases the nitrogen that ensures trees get the nutrients they require. “In a forest, trees create their own food or natural fertilizer by shedding their leaves in the fall and by branches naturally decaying on the forest floor. In urban environments like the GTA, the leaves and branches are cleaned up leaving nothing to return to the soil,” says Peter Crawford of Rooted Tree Services. “Other plants and grasses are also competing for the soil’s nutrients and nutrient deficiencies in urban landscapes are one of the leading causes of tree and shrub problems. We’ve created this deep fertilization program to help communities help their trees. Starting the process of contacting us for a no charge quote is a great way to celebrate Canada Health Day in your neighborhood.”

    How it’s done: A qualified Rooted Tree Services’ GTA arborist will identify and select an area around the trees and shrubs that need fertilization. The enlisted tree crew will then drill roughly 18 inch holes harmlessly into the ground with a gas powered auger, and then a commercial granular fertilizer will be inserted into the holes at the proper depth to release the nitrogen. Residents and business owners who do not use the services of a qualified arborist run the risk of burning their lawns and further damaging their trees and shrubs. Rooted Tree Services can be contacted at 1-855-766-8331 and are available for a 24 hour emergency response.
