You don’t have to be a scientist to apply fertilizer to the trees in your Vancouver, WA yard, but it does take some science to work out the right amounts to apply and when.
Just like a growing baby, young trees require different amounts of nutrients than older trees – and they require them in different doses and at different times of year to match a tree’s natural growing cycle.
We can help you take care of all those details with a worry-free fertilization program, and can provide you with a free estimate just by calling (360) 635-1076 or e-mailing us at AK Timber Services.
There’s More To Dropping Fertilizer
Soil sampling is required in order to properly devise an effective fertilization program for trees, regardless of age. The main difference is that younger trees require regular fertilization between Spring and Summer, with volume and frequency decreasing as they age.
All trees require different amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium – which can be determined by soil tests – to maintain their health.
Once these factors have been determined and a proper fertilization program has been developed, you may want to explore the difference between organic and inorganic fertilizers.
Organic fertilizers are made up of plant or animal products and release nutrients at a much slower rate, where inorganic varieties are inexpensive and easier to find in the general marketplace.
Our certified arborists can advise you on the best choices to make for treating the trees in your yard based on knowledge, skill and the soil and environmental conditions in and around those trees.
