Deep Root Feeding and Watering

Deep Root Injections

Denver’s climate and heavy clay soils are great for growing grass, not trees, so most trees seen in the City are planted. Since trees are not native to the Denver area, it makes sense that they might need some extra care to thrive here. A well-thought-out deep root feeding and watering program in the summer and winter will make trees less susceptible to disease, insect infestations, and unpredictable weather.

Quick Facts from Colorado State University

  • Most tree roots are in the top 6 to 24 inches of the soil and occupy an area 2 to 4 times the tree crown’s diameter.

  • Roots obtain water, oxygen, and minerals from the soil. They do not grow toward anything or in any particular direction.

  • Soil compaction, change in soil depth, and improper watering can injure roots, increasing stress and susceptibility to disease and insects.

  • To avoid root disease, maintain a healthy, vigorous environment around a tree.

  • Construction damage severely affects a tree’s root system. If the damage is extensive, the tree usually needs to be removed.

Tree Root Systems

A tree’s root system absorbs the water and minerals from the soil to nourish the tree. The root system stores essential food during the winter months to prepare the tree for spring, foliage, and seed production. Deep root feeding pushes nutrients, air, and water to the roots through a hollow probe in the ground.
