Improper fertilization can damage your tree, so only fertilize your tree if a soil test indicates a deficiency. New trees do not typically need to be fertilized, so err on the side of caution!

 

What new trees DO need is periodic inspections for pests, diseases, and DDD branches. Look for these indicators in the spring and early summer, especially. If a tree has an injury such as mechanical or deer damage, be sure to monitor the injury for fungal growth or pests. If you need help identifying a pest or disease or need advice on how to treat a tree with a secondary stressor, please reach out to us or a certified arborist!
