Fertilization and Organic Care
Lead with Plant Health Care: Soil & Root Care
The health of your plants and trees lies in their roots. The soil around the roots must provide water, oxygen and nutrients. North Eastern Tree, Shrub, & Lawn Care’s fertilization treatment for trees and shrubs enhances your soil with valuable micronutrients and biostimulants for healthier roots and root growth.
Nutrients and soil amendments are injected directly into the plant’s root zone. Some of the nutrients are utilized immediately and while others remain in the root zone for future use to stabilize your plants and trees in the winter and spring.
Plants require macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients to grow and thrive. After a visual inspection, your arborist may conduct a soil test. Based on the results, we prepare a custom blend of fertilizer that addresses the nutrient deficiencies in your soil. We also use compost, organic products and specially prepared organic teas to stimulate plant health naturally.
- Macro-nutrients include nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium or N-P-K.
- Micro-nutrients include as boron, magnesium, manganese, iron, zinc, copper, molybdenum and selenium.
Mycorrhizae Root Enhancer
These beneficial fungi live in and around the roots of trees and shrubs, serving as a secondary root system, extending themselves far out into the soil. Trees with thriving mycorrhizal root systems are healthier, more robust, and are more resistant to drought and disease.
They increase plant strength and chlorophyll production and help them tolerate severe heat and cold. Biostimulants improve soil structure, root growth and the uptake of N-P-K. We use a variety of biostimulants, including humic and amino acids, North Atlantic sea kelp extract, natural sugars, vitamins and other organic compounds.
Natural Organic Tree Care Techniques
When a natural based program is preferred, a skilled and committed arborist is required to understand the needs of your landscape. The focus is on preventative maintenance, early detection and organic controls. Regular inspections allow our arborist to identify issues early and appropriately time treatments. For treatments to be effective, timing is critical.
North Eastern Tree, Shrub, & Lawn Care’s organic program uses products reviewed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI). We offer organic fertilizer and naturally-based insect and disease management programs. Products including organic materials like horticultural oil, botanical insecticide oils, insecticidal soap, pyrethrum, sea kelp, as well as products derived from plants and microorganisms.
