If your tree's leaves are yellowing out of season, it may be as a result of iron deficiency. TreeHelp Iron Tablets can bring back a lush, green color to your tree's foliage.
Iron is essential for the synthesis of chlorophyll and its presence ensures green, lush trees and ornamental plants. When it is deficient in the soil, a condition known as "iron chlorosis" results. Leaves affected by iron chlorosis turn yellow while the veins remain dark green. (see photos at right) If this condition continues, the leaves may turn white or brown and the tree may die. Sometimes the whole tree is affected, sometime only a few parts. If you see this type of yellowing, you should treat your tree with TreeHelp Iron Tablets.
When placed in the ground around the tree, TreeHelp Iron Tablets simultaneously release Iron and alter the pH level of the soil in order to make the iron accessible to the tree. The tree is then able to synthesize more chlorophyll and the leaves will become greener. Positive results are normally seen from 30-90 days from the time of the application.
Most landscape trees and shrubs are affected by iron chlorosis and therefore can benefit from TreeHelp Iron Tablets. Particularly susceptible are: pin oak, silver maple, baldcypress, crabapple, sweet gum, white pine, elm, London planetree, cottonwood, walnut, sugar maple, Eastern redcedar, Bradford pear and willow.
