The higher pH soils in Iowa can make it difficult for plants to utilize the iron present in the soil, which can lead to an iron deficiency problem for your trees. Our iron chlorosis treatments make iron more readily available for plants, but first, we need to be sure that iron deficiency is the problem that your trees are dealing with. We have several different ways we treat iron chlorosis. Early treatment of iron deficiency is always best to keep your trees healthy.

If the leaves of trees on your property are turning an unhealthy yellow color, your tree may be subject to an iron deficiency called iron chlorosis. There are various reasons why the leaves may be turning yellow, so our tree care specialist will first identify that iron chlorosis is the problem. If the tissue of the leaf turns yellow but the area around the major veins of the leaf is still green, then it is most likely an iron deficiency.
The generally alkaline soils in our area of Iowa make any iron in the soil insoluble, so trees cannot extract it from the soil. Correcting an iron deficiency is difficult at the soil level, so treating the tree is the next best alternative. We offer three treatment options for iron chlorosis, they are:
Our chelated iron application and direct injection treatments provide longer-lasting results, many times lasting for years.
Trees that are left untreated from an iron deficiency will continue to decline in health and eventually die. Springtime applications of our injection or root system-based iron chlorosis treatment options are best, so the nutrient is available for chlorophyll production throughout the growing season. Our injection treatments can be done any time, as long as the tree is not dormant at the time of treatment.
