|Fertilization & Insect
|Fall is the best time to apply slow release tree food. After a season of growing above
the ground, winter is the season for the tree to grow below the ground.
Photosynthesis in the leaf manufactures sugar and starch for storage in the trunk
and roots for next seasons growth. That is how the leaves come out in the spring.
During the time that the leaves change color in the fall, to the time that the ground
freezes to a depth of about 12 inches, roots grow. As long as the ground is still
unfrozen near the frost line, roots are pushing towards new food collection areas.
This is why Arborcare chooses fall to apply a mixture of fertilizer and special spores
to help the new roots become more efficient. High nitrogen slow release fertilizer is
best since the phosphorus and potassium are plentiful in the soil already.
