Fertilizing gives trees a nutrient boost, making them stronger and more prepared to withstand natural stressors like pests, diseases, and inclement weather. However, it can take some time for surface fertilization to affect the extensive root system. This is why deep root fertilization is so important, especially in the spring.
One of the best parts of spring and summer is watching your tree go from a dormant state into lush greenery. Laying back in a hammock with a beer under the shade of a nice, full tree is one of the best ways to stay cool in summer, so you might be disappointed if the leaves turn brown during the height of the season. The reasons can be fairly natural and simple, so don’t panic – just get out the hose!
