Providing the Nutrients Needed for Tree Growth

Trees require water, sunlight, and nutrients to grow healthy and strong. If a tree has nutrient deficiencies, it will show in the appearance of the tree and leave it vulnerable to decay and disease. Nutrient deficiencies can have a number of causes. Identifying the deficient nutrients can help ensure effective fertilization. 

Signs of a nutrient deficiency can include: 

  • Pale or yellowed leaves 
  • Undersized leaves 
  • Slower growth than normal 

The nutrient requirements of a tree vary, depending on the species and age of the tree. Generally, newly planted or young trees require more nutrients than mature trees. Knowing the specific health requirements of the tree and the condition of the soil are essential for effective fertilization.

When making decisions about tree fertilization, it is important to get the advice of an experienced, certified arborist. Many people mistakenly believe that all trees benefit from fertilizer and that more will produce better results — neither of these beliefs are true. Some tree species do not require fertilizer at all to grow strong and healthy; using a fertilizer in this situation can cause harm to the tree. 

It is a common misconception that if some fertilizer is good, more must be better. In fact, over-fertilizing trees and plants can be harmful. For the best results, it is important to assess the health of the tree and soil conditions to identify specific deficiencies. Using that information, you can select the right fertilizer and use it in the right amounts at the right time. 

An ISA-certified arborist is best suited to make these determinations. Proper fertilization begins with an assessment of the overall health of the tree and a diagnosis of any nutrient deficiencies, disease, and other vulnerabilities. Based on this information, a plan can be developed to provide the right fertilizer in the proper amounts and at the right time of year to improve the health of your trees.
