The Best Thing for Trees and Shrubs!

Are your trees just barely surviving? Have they not grown much since they were planted? Do you want them to THRIVE to create shade, privacy, sound barriers and add value to your home?

Deep root fertilization is the best thing that can be done for your trees and shrubs. Soils in Colorado Springs do not have the nutrients available for trees and shrubs to flourish. Most areas of Colorado Springs were never dense forests or fertile farmland. The reason is that the soils could not support this due to lack of nutrients. It is essential to fertilize your trees and shrubs once per year to ensure growth, vigor, and color. Deep root fertilization can be done in the spring or fall, but should be done when the trees are dormant. Our controlled release fertilizer will last for close to 12 months so this service only needs to be done once per year!

Micro-Injections – No risk of harm to humans, animals or the environment

Trees often have internal diseases that need to be treated through injections. There are many funguses and bacteria that will affect trees negatively and possibly kill trees. They can only be treated through micro-injections which are highly recommended to save mature trees. Micro-Injections can also be used if spraying is not desired. The capsules are self-contained so there is no risk of harm to humans, animals, or the environment.
