Feeding Pine Trees

Good morning everyone,

Recently, my wife and I have acquired some "week end" property in South Central Wisconsin.
(1 hour north of Madison, in Marquette County to be exact.)

The soil is very, very sandy.

I have a great many pine trees (three differnt kinds) that I have been moving out from under other trees into the sun.

Pines grow so slowly.

I would like to feed them something, other than plain water, that not only would keep them healthy, but encourge their growth.

Any suggestions as to what I could use ?

Any idea how often I should feed them ?

Thanks in advance for all responses.

Ray

Use slow-release fertlizer on newly planted pine trees. Roots of young pine trees are sensitive to overfertilizing with quick-release fertilizer. The second year and afterwards, you can apply 2-4 pounds of 10-10-10 fertilizer for every 100 square feet of bed area.
