All plants need nutrients and must exchange gases in order to live and thrive. Fundamental to good plant health is strong root growth and structure.

Roots only grow where the physical and chemical environment is correct: nutrient supply, temperature, moisture, aeration, pH, and soil structure.

Many fertilizer products are available to provide trees with the appropriate nutrients in both organic (naturally occurring) and inorganic (synthetic) formats.

Determining the need for fertilization, the selection of the appropriate remedy, timing and quantity of application requires a strong arboriculture background.

Keep in mind that when one or more essential nutrients are deficient in the soil, a tree will not reach its full landscape potential and will have a shorter lifespan than a similar, well-fertilized tree. Gas exchange can be facilitated through the removal of small cores of soil.

This allows air, moisture and fertilizer down to the root zone, and is a commonly used practice to improve aeration. Aerating is usually performed with a power aerator (or coring machine).

Power aerators are very heavy machines and, if rented, typically require two people to transport. Additionally, they are usually not easy machines to operate and require some degree of physical strength.

We recommend you consider using a specialist for this procedure.

Don’t take chances with the health of your plants. Let the experts at BC Tree Service ensure that your trees, shrubs, and plants fertilization and aeration requirements are properly met.
