Deep Root Fertilization
Soils lacking elements vital to a tree’s health can cause severe deficiencies in trees and can leave the tree vulnerable to pests and diseases. Root zone fertilzation can help replenish some of these vital elements.
Alberta Arborists only uses top quality, low salt index fertilizers which prevent root burn. Our soil injection of fertilizer and water is applied by pressurized injection into the root zones of your trees and shrubs. This method of application relieves soil compaction by aerating the soil, allowing for better root growth and the absorption of water, nutrients and oxygen. It will help reduce the severity of drought injury and allow your trees and shrubs to recover more rapidly.
Disease & Insect Diagnosis
While Alberta Arborists prefers not to use pesticides for the treatment of diseases or insect infestations. We can professinally diagnosis your trees pest and disease problems and then recommend the appropriate course of action required. If the use of pesticides are still needed, we can refer you to a local licensed company that can provide you with this service.
Insect infestation and diseases in trees and shrubs are problems that are most commonly treated with chemicals. However, the infestation of pests or diseases is typically a symptom of something larger. The health of the tree and its ability to defend itself from infestation are of the utmost concern. When a tree is under stress or expending alot of its energy on healing itself from storm damage or other damage like improper pruning, it leaves the tree susceptible to attack because it often does not have the resources to defend itself.
At Alberta Arborists, we prefer to take a preventative approach when dealing with insect infestations and disease. If your tree is strong and healthy because it is receiving sufficient water, sunlight, proper pruning and is utilizing nutrients from the surrounding soil, it will be better able to defend itself against insect and disease infestations.
