Tree Planting and Tree Health

Trees, Shrubs and green plants not only add color and symmetry to our yards, but they also establish essential focal points. It may seem that Trees and Shrubs are Self-Sufficient. Though they might be Low-Maintenance Plants, but it definitely does not mean that Trees and Shrubs are No-Maintenance Plants.


Longevity Benefits to keeping your Trees and Shrubs Maintained, Routinely fertilized and Inspected Regularly:

It’s quite important to keep your trees and shrubs Fertilized, Maintained and Inspected regularly. The benefits are mentioned below:

  • Horticultural Oil can be added to soil, to protect trees and shrubs from the attack of pests, insects and plant diseases.
  • Fertilization is a source for proper growth of Trees and Shrubs.
  • With the passage of time, soil surrounding trees and shrubs starts to leech out essential nutrients. There’s a need to make up for the deficiency of essential nutrients. It is done using fertilizers.
  • A fertilizer increases the life of a plant.
  • Fertilizers have a specific ratio of Nitrogen (N), Potassium (K), and Phosphorus (P), which when added to soil through spreader, increase its health and productivity.
  • Fertilized Landscape plants are greener, have bigger leaves and stronger branches.

Tree and Shrub Fertilization:

Various Options for Fertilizing Trees and Shrubs:

  • Out of all the NPK (Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium) Fertilizers, those are the best which have the highest proportion of Nitrogen (N), because Nitrogen (N) yields the Greatest Growth Response in Trees and Shrubs.

    • 4-1-1
