Fertilizing – Caring for Newly Planted Trees Posted on by NVTree

Tree Services Las Vegas – Fertilizing

Newly Planted TreesTree fertilizing is usually not necessary the first year after planting a tree. Sometimes a nutrient deficiency exists which can be found through soil testing or when symptoms are seen in the tree. In this instance proper fertilizing will benefit the tree. A tree service can advise you on what is best for your individual tree.

Fertilizing can be detrimental

If a new tree absorbs large quantities of nutrients it will respond with too much growth of new shoots instead of developing a good root system. Newly planted trees need to develop this root system to provide proper support for the tree, to absorb enough water, and to find nutrients in the soil. Avoiding unnecessary fertilizing will allow the tree to grow at a proper rate, with healthy roots and the amount of new growth that the roots can support.

Nevada Tree, a tree service in Las Vegas, knows the signs when trees need fertilizing. They can advise you on the best way to care for your trees including the right fertilizer.
