Tree-tone® 6-3-2
For Shade, Fruit, and Ornamental Trees

All Natural Plant Food with Bio-tone® Microbes

Available in 4, 18 and 36 lb. Bags;
1 pound equals approx. 3 cups

Tree-tone is a premium plant food formulated specifically for shade, fruit, and ornamental trees.
Tree-tone's all natural formula contains Bio-tone®, our proprietary blend of beneficial microbes. Bio-tone biologically enhances our natural plant food to ensure superior plant growth. The natural organics in Tree-tone breakdown gradually to provide a safe, long lasting nutrient reservoir to feed the entire tree: leaves, trunk, and roots.

New Plantings
Dig a hole twice as wide and the same depth as the root ball.
Discard 1/2 of the soil and replace with compost, peat moss, or humus.
Mix Tree-tone in the amended soil as follows:
Trunk Diameter
Amount of Tree-tone
Up to 1.5 inches
4 lbs. total
2-3 inches
4 lbs. per inch
Over 3 inches
5 lbs. per inch

Place plant in hole ensuring it is at the same depth that it was grown
Fill the hole halfway with the amended soil, pack firm and water.
After the soil settles finish filling the hole leaving two inches loose for water absorption.
Make slight depression around the plant to hold water and add mulch.
Feeding Established Trees
Trees should be fed twice each year: in early Spring before growth starts and in Fall after leaves drop but before ground freezes. Use the following rates:
Trunk Diameter
Amount of Tree-tone
Up to 3 inches
3 lbs. per inch
3-6 inches
4 lbs. per inch
Over 6 inches
6 lbs. per inch

Feed small trees by spreading Tree-tone on the ground that is under and slightly beyond the branch spread. Feed large trees (over 6" trunk diameter) as follows:

Make a series of 3 inch wide holes, 12 -18 inches deep, 2-3 feet apart, under the drip line of the tree (outer edges of branches).
Divide the Tree-tone evenly and pour into holes.
Backfill holes with soil and water thoroughly.
