The healthiest trees have the nutrients they need to thrive. When the soil on your land is depleted of nutrients, these plants do not get the “food” they need. Think of the vitamins we get from our food, to keep ourselves healthy. Trees work similarly. For example, if your citrus tree receives specialized tree fertilizer, it can grow to its full potential and provide you with beautiful, nourished citrus tree.
