Trees are mistakenly known for not needing an awful lot of help to grow properly. People assume they aren't delicate like pansies, and they don't have the complicated characteristics of something like a Venus Fly Trap. But for Rochester, MN tree care enthusiasts, leaving your trees to grow on their own might feel more like a cop-out than a relief. In fact tree need your help.  And if you're interested in improving the growth and health of your trees, you should contact your local tree care experts at Maier Tree and Lawn, ask about pruning and fertilizer options, and maybe even see how you can get your hands dirty!

Minnesota tree lovers are lucky that a good portion of our Midwestern soil is rich in nutrients, but even the most nutrient rich soil can be a little lacking in an area or two. Some soil areas tend to be lacking in iron, and this can lead to yellowing leaves in affected trees. This is where tree fertilization comes in. In fact, adding a vitamin-rich boost can help with trees suffering from a variety of ailments, just as it does in humans.

If your tree is looking a little yellow or wilted, this could be a sign that it has some form of nutrient deficiency. Start by consulting a tree care expert to make sure there isn't another underlying issue such as disease. Once the deficiency is determined, do a little research and determined which fertilizer is right for your tree.  You’ll find that only one fertilizer, Davey’s Arbor Green Pro, is suitable in all situations.
