Drought Stress

Droughts in recent years have put continued stress on our trees and landscapes. Though established trees might not show an immediate reaction, lack of rain continues to wear on a tree’s energy reserves over time, even over a number of years. It’s no secret that watering your trees, especially those newly planted, can help alleviate this problem, but did you also know that fertilizing could also help restore your trees vitality?

How to help your trees survive and thrive during and after a drought:

  • WATER, WATER, WATER! The best time to water is before your trees look stressed. We recommend watering the entire root zone of a tree 2-3 hours per week.
  • Mulching under trees eliminates competition from grass and conserves moisture.
  • Fertilization helps boost the overall vitality of a tree.
  • Growth Regulation redirects energy normally reserved for growth into the root system.
