Default Which Fertilizer?

I have some questions regarding fertilizer.

The first has to do with clovers. What type (such as 10-10-10) should be applied and in what quantities per acre? I have read the first number should be zero as legumes are a "nitrogen fixers". Is it best to apply in the spring, fall, or anytime?

Secondly, what type should be applied to crab apple trees? Are the fertilizer "spikes" any better than loose fertilizer?

And finally, what type should be applied to conifers, specifically white pines?

Thanks for the information. This forum is really a great place to exchange information . I know I have learned a lot here and I'm sure many appreciate all the replies!
