Deep Root Injections

Deep Root Feeding

A great way to keep trees healthy is by deep root feeding. A tree’s root system anchors the tree as well as absorbs and transports water and minerals from the soil to nourish it. The root system stores essential food during the winter months to prepare the tree for spring and the production of foliage. Deep root feeding pushes nutrients, air, and water to the roots through a hollow stake in the ground. It encourages root growth and reduces water runoff. Ross Tree Company offers deep root feeding for your trees. For a free estimate of our deep root feeding and watering services, click here to fill out a request service form or call 303-871-9121.

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 diameter of the tree crown.

  • Roots obtain water, oxygen, and minerals from 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. Once a root system is severely affected, the tree must usually be removed.

Deep Root Watering

Homeowners in the Denver area need to remember that Colorado has an arid climate and our winters are sometimes too dry to adequately keep trees healthy. Ross Tree offers a deep root watering service. We inject water and nutrients around the tree, which allows the roots of trees and shrubs to absorb moisture and nutrients. Contact us to learn more about deep root watering!
