Life in the city is tough, especially for trees. The average life span of a tree planted in a suburban / urban landscape is 7-10 years.
Poor soils, soil compaction, dry conditions, and limited growing spaces are a few of the issues causing the shortened life span. Providing adequate water and essential nutrients to offset poor soils can make a difference in tree vitality.
Shadywood Tree Experts can add these needed nutrients through soil injections or injecting directly into the trunk, improving tree health and vitality. The old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” holds true for trees. A healthy, vigorously-growing tree can ward off many more insect and disease pests than a weakened, poorly maintained tree.
We recommend annual fertilization for trees in landscaped areas.
