Soil Analysis for Tree Health

Why should you perform a soil analysis for tree health? Unhealthy soil causes a staggering 80% of tree wellness issues. Soil characteristics vary from site to site. A custom soil analysis can quickly uncover valuable information on pH, organic matter, and nutrient levels on your grounds, identifying the root cause of issues impacting your tree’s health.

Skip the Guessing Games with a Soil Test

By performing a soil test, you can avoid spending time or money on soil amendments you don’t need and instead get to the root cause of your tree health and appearance issues. It takes just a few minutes to take a sample. With information from a custom soil analysis, our certified arborists can:

Uncover soil pH issues impacting tree health

Improper soil pH, whether too high or too low, prevents plants from taking in soil nutrients.

Detect nutrient deficiencies

When soil lacks available nutrients, your trees suffer deficiencies that make them unable to grow vigorously and more susceptible to pests and diseases.

Identify soil composition

Soil type is directly linked with soil drainage and irrigation challenges.
