How well a tree or shrub performs over time is significantly influenced by its immediate growing environment.  Trees and shrubs in a “natural” environment benefit from a steady source of nutrients that re-cycle over time.  When we introduce plants into our landscape this system is no longer available and they are subjected to other stresses and unfamiliar competition as well.

Accordingly often the single best thing we can do to promote plant development is to ensure that soil conditions and the growing environment are conducive to good health.  Although soils in our region are “predictable” to some extent, the best way to identify problems, deficiencies and excesses is to conduct a site visit and perform a soil test.

By properly supplementing the soil in a way that best mimics a natural growing environment, trees and shrubs have the best opportunity to develop to their full genetic potential and exhibit the unique characteristics the specific plant is best known for.
