Nutrient Deficiencies

At Alive Tree Care we treat hundreds of trees for Iron and Manganese deficiencies.  Trees develop deficiencies or chlorosis due to poor soil quality or an elevated soil pH.  If your tree has leaves that are light in color or turning yellow, these are signs that the tree has chlorosis.  In most cases the tree requires yearly treatments and will improve over time.  Trees most often suffering from chlorosis include Oaks, Maples, Birch and Sweet Gum.  If left untreated, most trees with chlorosis will be stunted and slowly decline over a number of years.  

We have several ways we can treat for chlorosis including trunk injections, deep root fertilization and soil drench applications.
