Is Deep-Root Tree Feeding in Houston necessary.?
Deep-root tree feeding is a process of punching holes in the ground to deposit nutrients directly into the root zone. By doing this, we recreate the environment of the forest floor with a well-balanced 3-1-2 fertilizer. The organic mixture is then inserted 2.5-3 feet under the canopy of your tree with an 18 inch probe.
Unlike forest environments, urban landscapes do not offer the immediate nutrients to your tree’s root zone and surrounding soil. Many nutrients are no longer present in urban or suburban landscapes. For example, leaves in the forest are nature’s way of providing deep-root feeding. As leaves are removed from urban and suburban landscapes, the tree’s future food is removed.
Another circumstance that may require deep-root feeding is when tree roots are covered by grass. When this occurs, the tree roots encounter difficulty feeding as it competes with the grass roots for nutrients. Therefore, deep-root feeding may be necessary to properly nourish your tree.
