Why Use Tree Nutrients?

Tree Nutrients (Fertilizer Spikes) ensure a continuous supply of nutrients below the surface, where the trees active roots are growing.

What are tree nutrients (fertilizer spikes)?

Tree nutrients combine essential plant nutrients in solid, spike-shaped delivery devices that are hammered into the ground in spring and again in fall. The 6-inch-long spikes gradually dissolve, delivering nutrients to trees and shrubs.

Roots continue growth and consumption of nutrients long after leaves fall into December. For a period of time, trees go through a process called dormancy, similar to hibernation. Within a tree, things tend to slow down, such as its metabolism, energy, consumption, growth, etc. Once spring settles in, trees breakout out of their dormant state. This allows for them to get back to normality and have a flourishing work flow to nourish future leaves to grow. Nutrition spikes provide those nutrients the roots can somewhat absorb throughout dormancy and then already be in the ground when the roots resume functioning in the spring.
