Soil in the urban environment is subject to many factors that limit its ability to provide the proper nutrients, moisture and structure necessary for healthy trees to survive in the landscape. Compaction, lack of organic matter, insufficient soil structure, and limited rooting area all combine to make a harsh environment for your trees’ root system. Poor root health is often the instigating factor that allows insect and disease problems to occur in our trees. Our custom soil and root care programs increase tree vigor and health, allowing your trees to strengthen their natural defenses and live a longer, healthier life.
In addition to replenishing the soil with necessary nutrients, and repairing soil structure for continued growth and vigor, soil amendments and fertilization treatments provide these significant plant health care benefits:
- Healthier appearance and growth
- Increased soil aeration and carrying capacity
- Relief from sources of urban stress
- Recovery aid of declining, mature trees
- Repair of damage from drought stress
