How do trees utilize nutrients?
Correctly managing the health of your tree starts with learning about how nutrients are used by trees. Tree’s generally take their nutrients from the soil of their roots, water, sunlight, and the ecosystem surround them. This is why trees in urban areas such as cities, will have such a hard time. Organic or chemical fertilizers can be an incredible way to give your tree’s health a jumpstart. The reasons we use fertilizer are as numerous as they are beneficial. One of the main reasons to use fertilizer is to help our trees get over the hurdle of nutrient deficiency.
Secondly fertilizers can help our trees to experience greater harvests of fruit growth.
Photosynthesis is the main source of nutrients for trees on par with watering the roots. Through photosynthesis trees can take in sunlight and put it together with water to create chlorophyll and glucose. Each of the two is necessary for maintaining the long lifespan of the tree. Furthermore, this process is used to store energy in order to make it through the winter. If your tree appears to have visible deficiencies in health calling your local arborist is a great step forward.
