Deep Root Fertilization: Getting Your Trees The Nutrients They Need

When we plant a tree we do so with the intention of having it grow old with us, provide shade for our family, and beautify our landscapes. They’re an important investment, that’s why we want them to stay healthy and strong. But they might not be getting the most out of your traditional fertilizer, that’s when it’s time to start thinking about deep root fertilization. 

Most fertilizers take a long time and a lot of water to soak down into the roots not to mention competition from other plants. At 4-EverGreen, our deep root fertilization program is the answer for you.

Deep root fertilization utilizes deep root fertilizers to fertilize your trees and give them the essential nutrients they need while breaking up the compacted soil, keeping your tree healthy and providing beauty to your Germantown, TN lawn.

What Is Deep Root Fertilization?

Deep root fertilization, or deep root feeding, is the method by which fertilizer, water, insecticides, and other nutrients are injected directly into the root system of a tree. This targeted process delivers a time-released mixture of nutrients right where the tree needs it, the roots. This promotes year-round growth and has many long-lasting benefits.

What Are The Benefits Of Deep Root Fertilization?

Deep root injections are fast and targeted with results you can see.

1. Encourages root growth:

The targeted mixture goes right where it needs to and fast, resulting in quicker absorption and effectiveness.

2. Proper nutrients for trees:

Mixtures are specifically designed for the tree in question.

3. Healthier more attractive trees:

Because the tree won’t need to compete with other trees or plants, it can take all the nutrients for itself.

4. Soil Aeration:Using deep root fertilization will also help you with soil aeration, alleviating soil compaction around your trees in your Cordova, TN lawn.

The instruments used to inject the fertilizer also loosens the soil around the tree, reducing compaction.

5. Protection from disease and insects:


Certain trees are vulnerable to diseases and the pests that carry them.

7. Promotes healthy foliage:

You will see a fast, noticeable difference in the lushness of your trees.


Depending on the season, weather, and other factors, your tree’s needs are not always the same. Deep root injections keep the tree in top shape by giving them everything they need to grow strong.
