    Tree fertilization is a common service provided by commercial arborists and landscapers. Customers and clients are familiar with fertilization from the care of house or garden plants. Any hardware or garden supply store has attractive packages of colored crystals or liquid solutions that promise rapid growth and abundant blossoms. This familiarity with fertilization of annual or herbaceous perennial plants is extended by the public to the care of landscape trees. Of course fertilization is a common service!
