Proper tree and shrub fertilization prevents the need for Milwaukee tree removal. Plants, trees, and shrubs six months to four years old require spring fertilization for good growth. While fertilizing six months after planting is recommended, fertilizing at the two year mark is essential for plants and shrubs roots to receive the nutrients they need. Our Milwaukee tree service experts recommend fertilizing plants and trees six months after planting unless the soil has insufficient nitrogen. Add slow-release fertilizer to the planting hole if soil nitrogen levels are low. Soil test kits provide inexpensive, reliable measurement of soil nitrogen levels. Discontinue plant, tree, and shrub fertilization after spring growth, usually completed by mid-summer. Continued plant, tree, or shrub fertilization after mid-summer may disrupt the plant’s fall and winter dormancy cycles causing harsh Wisconsin winters to harm the plants’ growth.
Fertilization is not an essential Milwaukee tree service for all trees and shrubs. Large existing trees and plants often remain healthy with annual applications of compost or organic mulch. Good leaf color and noticeable yearly new shoot growth are signs a tree or plant is healthy and doesn’t require fertilization. Plant and tree damage is difficult to detect with an untrained eye and Milwaukee tree removal becomes the only option if left untreated. The Milwaukee tree service experts at Buckley Tree Service can assess the health of your trees and plants and initiate a personalized plant health care program for continued growth.
