The Benefits of Deep Root Tree Fertilization in Idaho


When you’re really hungry, and your four-meat, three-cheese pizza just arrived, nice and hot and smelling delicious, you don’t set it on the counter for later.

You dive in right away, right, secretly hoping nobody walks into the room so you don’t have to share.

No shame. We’ve all been there.

Your trees feel the same way. They’re hungry. They want food right now. That’s where deep root tree fertilization comes in.

Here’s how it works.

Deep Root Fertilization: What Is It?

Deep root tree fertilization injects nutrients for your tree directly deep into the soil, rather than spreading it over the top.

By injecting the fertilizer with high pressure, the nutrients can reach the deepest tree roots fast, feeding your tree from the roots up.

How Deep Root Fertilization for Trees Works

The fertilizer is delivered straight to the tree’s roots, with a long, cool-looking wand, so your tree gets an immediate nutrition boost.

Then, over time, the nutrients make their way to the rest of your tree, making it healthier and more vibrant.

It’s All About Those Important Roots

There are a lot of roots down there, hungry for nutrients. Look at your tree canopy. Now imagine the root system underground, often spreading out twice as wide.

If your trees lived in the woods, they’d get a lot more nutrients naturally.

Tree roots and leaves

All those leaves and woody debris covering the forest flood stay there, slowly breaking down over time into nutritious tidbits.

But in urban yards and on commercial properties, we scoop up all that nutritious debris.

Meanwhile, your trees are competing for the soil’s nutrients with lawn and other trees, shrubs, and plants.

A tree can get really hungry out there.

The Benefits of Deep Root Fertilizer in Idaho

  • Deep root fertilization gets right to the point, delivering tasty nutrients like phosphorus and iron inserted into the ground straight to your tree’s roots.
  • Deep root fertilizer goes straight into the soil, with no runoff. That means it’s safer for the environment.
  • The fertilizer is injected under pressure, which also helps aerate the soil and offers much-needed oxygen for the root system.
  • Deep root fertilizing strengthens your tree, enabling it to better fend off pests and diseases.

Signs Your Tree Needs Deep Root Fertilization

Your trees can’t talk, unless they’re those crabby trees in the “Wizard of Oz” forest. But if you pay attention, they’re telling you they need a nutrient boost.

Look for these signs:

  • Their leaves are smaller than normal.
  • Leaves have dead spots or are yellowing.
  • Branches are thinning, or the tips are dying.
  • There isn’t much growth.

The Best Time for Deep Root Tree Fertilization

Fall is a great time for deep root fertilizer in Idaho.

The deep feeding will bolster your trees after the stress of a long, hot summer of growing, and set them up in good shape for the winter ahead.

The slow-release nutrients will continue to nourish your trees in the months ahead.
