What We Do


Trees need regular fertilizing just like any other living thing. Trees are generally durable, capable of surviving harsh weather conditions and grow in our Maine weather. But to keep them healthy and thriving, fertilizing provides them nutrition.

Benefits of  Fertilizing

While trees can be fairly self-reliant, they also benefit greatly from regular maintenance work such as pruning, trimming, and fertilization. These maintenance steps help ensure the tree’s health over long periods of time.

It’s also a cost-saving measure. By keeping trees healthy, you won’t need to worry about having to remove a dead or dying tree from your property.  It can cost money to remove and replace a tree, including the cost for grinding down the stump.

Fertilizing gives trees important nutrients, supports tree growth, and contributes to the overall health and vitality of a tree.

Proper fertilization helps supply a tree with nutrients unique to the needs of the certain species of tree. For example, fruit trees may need different fertilizers than an oak. Over time local soil may become depleted of needed nutrients for the tree to thrive and survive.

Fertilization also allows the tree to feed on the nutrients as needed, effectively working as an automated food dispenser for the tree similar to automatic food dispensers used for cats, dogs, and other domestic pets.

Bottom line, regular tree fertilizations can work wonders to maintain a healthy and beautiful tree, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of shade and the natural beauty supplied by every healthy tree.

Fertilization Considerations

 Fertilizing trees can be a lot more complicated than just spraying nutrients at a tree’s limbs or leaves or tossing fistfuls of plant food onto the tree’s base.

Fertilizer application has to take into consideration a number of specific factors, such as the tree’s age and classification, trunk circumference, root system, and overall connection to any neighboring plants. We can identify what is needed to promote your trees overall health. You don’t want to fertilize without knowing what you are doing. Let us guide you as to the best ways to fertilize your trees.

We know how to analyze what the tree needs and determine the best mix and application.
