Tree Fertilizer Services in Calgary
Cities are tough places for trees to grow. Competition with other vegetation, compact soils, traffic and pollution can inhibit growth and make your trees susceptible to pests and diseases. That’s why ArborCare® offers deep-root tree fertilization services for homes and businesses in Calgary. The process ensures your trees get the nutrients they need to keep them healthy and beautiful for years to come.

Reasons to Fertilize Trees and Shrubs
Alkaline soil conditions in urban areas make it difficult for planted trees and shrubs to thrive naturally. Soil analysis research reveals that most local soil conditions don’t carry enough of the basic minerals required for the healthy growth of the plant.
So, to help neutralize alkalinity, and promote tree and shrub leaf growth, ArborCare uses an acidic fertilizer with micronutrients and humic acid. Using a sub-surface, high-pressure, liquid injection process, our arborists deliver the fertilizer into the soil and tree roots.
The type of fertilizer we use depends on the following factors:
- The species of the tree
- The age of the tree
- The soil conditions surrounding the tree
- The tree’s overall health
- The local stress conditions
Our professional arborists know the local soil conditions and plant requirements. They’ll mix and apply fertilizer products to deliver maximum nourishment to your plants.
Benefits of Deep Root Tree Fertilization
When you apply deep root fertilization to your trees and shrubs, you’ll see many benefits, including:
- Increased lush foliage and flowering
- New growth
- Reduced soil compaction
- Better resistance to diseases and pests
Healthy trees can also better withstand the stresses of harsh winters and will bounce to life in the spring.
When to Apply Deep Root Tree Fertilization
Trees should be fertilized twice a year, once in the spring or summer, once in the fall. In spring, water that carries nutrients is redirected from the roots upward to the branches and emerging leaves. In mid-to-late April and May, we apply fertilizer by injecting it into the root zone around the drip line.
In the fall, the water within the tree travels downward to help the growth and development of the roots. ArborCare’s fall fertilizers supply specific nutrients and minerals to help roots grow. This is vital for newly planted trees and shrubs harmed by insect infestation or other stresses during the summer. Fall applications are done from mid-September to late October.
