Fall Fertilization is the most effective method for fertilizing trees and shrubs, typically done in late fall. Through this process, a liquid time-release fertilizer is applied to the surface of the ground, drenching the root zone and not applied on the plant itself.
The liquid fertilizer blend is scientifically formulated to deliver high quality nutrients to trees / shrubs and promote better resistance to disease and drought. Proper nourishment will help your plants grow stronger from the roots upward. Fall Fertilization can help keep your trees and shrubs healthier, promoting the luxurious foliage that adds beauty and value to your property.

Fall Fertilization FAQ's
During the growing season, landscape ornamental trees and shrubs are both growing above and below the ground. Providing nutrients at this time will typically be used up by excessive unhealthy foliage growth; if done late during the growing season, this may not allow enough time to harden off before the winter season. This service targets the development of the root system, therefore must be done after the growing season and just prior to the winter season. The products we use are scientifically proven formulations of quality nutrients that provide root development and maximum efficiency of foliage development the following spring.
No, both newly planted and mature landscape ornamental trees and shrubs will benefit from the controlled release nitrogen in Fall Fertilization.
The purpose of this application is to provide nutrients to the root system for both growth and health of the overall tree or plant. Spraying the product directly on the branches will not trans-locate to the root zone. Drenching the soil around the drip line ensures that the fertilizer will be absorbed by the root system.
Fertilizing trees and shrubs in the fall helps them with the essential nutrients before winter dormancy. This aids in root development and strengthens the plants for the upcoming growing season. Additionally, during the fall, plants allocate energy towards root growth, making it an optimal time for nutrient absorption from fertilizers.
While active growth slows down during dormancy, nutrients are still important for trees and shrubs during this period. Nutrients stored in the roots and other plant tissues play a crucial role in supporting various biological processes that continue even when the plant is dormant. These nutrients help the plant maintain its overall health and prepare for the upcoming growing season. Providing proper nutrients before dormancy can help ensure that the plant has the resources it needs to thrive when it needs to resume active growth in the spring.
