Don’t over think the timing part. If your favorite seedlings and/or mast bearing trees haven’t been fed in a while, now is a great time. To make life easier, Biologic developed Tree-Paks, a fertilizer and micronutrient blend for soft and hard mast seedlings and trees, and it couldn’t be easier to use. One bag of 32 Tree-Paks is incredibly economical and can treat 32 newly planted seedlings, 16 young saplings, or one large mature tree.
Although trees can “get by” without fertilizer, giving the soil a boost in fertility can reward you with phenomenal growth rates, a decrease in the number of years until the production of mast, and an improvement in the palatability (taste) and amounts of mast. So if you have a few seedlings in the ground that need a boost, or a secret hunting area surrounded by fruit or nut trees you’d like to sweeten up, don’t forget to pack a couple bags of Biologic Tree-Paks for your next trip to the woods so you can reap the rewards down the road. The video below will walk you through the process.
