Tree Fertilization Service in Minnesota
The health of your trees depends on the health of your soil. When trees grow in a forest, their nutrient needs are met perfectly by the decomposition of organic matter. The roots of turfgrass under trees compete for water, nutrients, and rooting space. In urban environments of Minnesota, trees often lack access to natural fertilization and must rely on supplemental nutrients provided through tree fertilization to reach their full potential.
One of our ISA Certified Arborists can evaluate all of the factors that impact your trees’ health and make residential or commercial tree fertilization recommendations for your trees based on their species and growing environment.
Custom Tree Fertilization Service for the Minneapolis Area
Tree fertilizer is not a one-size-fits-all service. Nutrient needs vary significantly across the country based on weather, soil composition, and local tree and shrub species. That’s why Rainbow Treecare partnered with national tree fertilizer expert, Doggett Corporation, to develop a customized fertilizer blend for the Twin Cities’ unique conditions.
We utilized hundreds of soil samples from our metropolitan area, our knowledge of common trees to the region, and Doggett’s high-quality ingredients to formulate this perfect nutritional support for your trees and shrubs. Our professional-grade suspension fertilizer is injected below the soil surface so that your tree roots (and not your lawn or plants) will receive the benefit. The slow-release fertilizer binds to the soil and delivers nutrients as needed for two years after application.
Our tree fertilization services in the Minneapolis area use these custom blends to restore the nutrients in the tree’s soil.
Four specialty blends:
- Tree Nutrition Maintenance Formula
- Tree Nutrition Pro-Growth Formula
- Tree Nutrition Chlorosis Blend
- Tree Nutrition Chlorosis Blend + Nitrogen
Benefits of Tree Fertilization Service
Urban trees are consistently under-nourished for the following reasons:
- Lack of decomposing material around trees due to raking and disposal of organic matter nearby
- Competition with grass and landscape plants for nutrients
- Nearby structures, sidewalks, and roads may limit trees’ access to available nutrients
Healthy trees can exist within the urban landscape. Proper fertilization of your trees allows for optimal health, and healthy trees are naturally more resistant to most insects and diseases.
