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 DiameterAmount of Tree-toneUp to 1.5 inches
4 lbs. total2-3 inches4 lbs. per inchOver 3 inches5 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 DiameterAmount of Tree-toneUp to 3 inches
3 lbs. per inch3-6 inches4 lbs. per inchOver 6 inches6 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.
