Fall Root Feeding

Aug 28th 2018

It’s the time of year when we start preparing for our fall root feeding program. Due to Montana’s short growing season, it is important to maximize the growth process of plants. Our root feeding does just that. This program allows plants to produce during the entire season when the soil is not frozen. It also maximizes root production during the dormancy period when the ground is frost free.

Forest floors are covered with naturally occurring fertilizer from rotting leaf and twig litter. In our urban landscapes, we tend to remove that litter which then removes beneficial elements from the soil. Root feeding replenishes the soil with a slow release fertilizer applied strategically at the feeder root zone. It is specifically designed to keep the beneficial nutrients in the soil until the tree comes out of dormancy in the spring to be utilized then. Not only does this application add fertilizer, it also opens compacted soil to initiate new root growth. This application is the only fertilizer your trees and shrubs will need for a year.

Our skilled, licensed and certified technicians know when and how to execute this procedure. The results will be strong growth, increased hardiness and improved resistance to stress, insects and disease. This is one of the best things you can do for your trees and shrubs and we are eager to help you!
