How We Can Help

In urban areas, a tree’s growth potential is limited by space and the health of the soil. Unlike trees that grow in natural areas, urban trees often grow in soil that is lacking key nutrients, the right pH balance, and appropriate drainage. A tree specialist can test the soil to evaluate the soil exchange capacity and the quantity of nutrients available. They can also make adjustments or add nutrients to stimulate growth and overall tree health if necessary. A certified arborist can:

  • Complete a soil assessment under appropriate moisture conditions
  • Evaluate soil life, including the number and vibrancy of insects and earthworms
  • Give different assessments to different types of soil
The assessment the arborist gives will check for many things, including that:
  • There is plenty of space between soil crumbles to allow for water and air
  • The soil has good permeability so water can move freely through it and reach the tree’s roots
  • The soil has good water-holding capacity
  • The soil is composed of quality organic matter with appropriate nutrients and pH balance

Assessing the quality of your soil requires the experience and care of a professional. Without properly determining if your soil is healthy and full of nutrients, your trees may not reach their full potential or could get sick and die.
