At the beginning of their growth cycles, a lot of different species of trees can be very fragile. It’s easy for them to be affected by bad weather, disease, pests and many other stressors that would normally not do much once they grow a thick bark and they’re bigger. If you plant smaller trees or seedlings, then you have to consider fertilizing them at the right time in order to help them strengthen their roots and grow more efficiently.
Fertilization is usually very necessary for lawns and gardens, because the plants and the grass that you plant needs the extra nutrients, especially if your soil isn’t very good at providing them naturally. Organic natural fertilizer is usually preferred, and it is also important to make sure that the fertilizer you’re using is a slow-release fertilizer, so you can avoid burning the plant and having many of the nutrients be washed away by the rain.
Trees have to be treated the same way at the beginning of their growth cycle. The same kind of slow-release organic fertilizer will be necessary as soon as the tree starts developing its initial stem and root system. Once you provide it with the right fertilizer, you’ll find that it will grow much richer and more quickly, and that it won’t be so likely to succumb to disease or weakness.
