SOIL CARE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Every tree within our urban environment has some level of poor soil health affecting it.

In order to build our homes and streets, we have to first remove the soft upper layers of soil so that we can build on a solid foundation.

*Those upper layers of soil contain the vast majority of nutrients needed to sustain a healthy tree.*

Upper topsoil layers takes between 100-500 years/inch to naturally form.

Trees in most of our urban environments are essentially eating the equivalent of fast food every day of their life.

It sustains them yes, but it also shortens their lifespan and makes them more likely to get sick.

*Providing soil care to your trees is similar to you having a healthy diet*

WHO IS IT FOR?

WHEN TO TREAT FOR THEM?

Trees with active bark beetles

Trees with recent damage (construction, lightning strike, etc.)

Trees which are irreplaceable or sentimental

WHY DO I NEED THIS?

Untreated, the tree is likely to decline and potentially die due to damage from the beetles

PHYTOPHTHORA CANKER

WHAT IS IT?

A pathogen that causes decay on the outside of the tree

WHO IS IT FOR?

This treatment is only recommended when the pathogen is present and active along the trunk of the tree

Soil

Mulch

E

Root mass from around the root collar of the tree

1989</p>
<p>

WHO IS IT FOR?

If a tree looks like a telephone pole going into the ground this treatment is needed.

Trees are meant to flare out at the base if you do not see this then that tree needs an RCE.

WHY DO I NEED THIS?

Buried root collars can cause numerous issues for the tree which can show as branch dieback, wilting, discoloration of the leaves, and several others.

SYSTEMIC INSECT TREATMENTS

1989</p>
<p>

WHAT IS IT?

Systemic insect treatments refer to any treatment where the insect is controlled by a product that is taken up by the roots and dispersed throughout the plant.

1989</p>
<p>

WHO IS IT FOR?

This treatment is recommended as either an initial treatment to aid a biological control program or as the primary insect control for pests that can not be controlled by biological control.

1989</p>
<p>

WHY DO I NEED THIS?

In many cases biological control can be ineffective if the pest population is too high. Thus systemic treatments are used to reduce the pest population to manageable levels.

TREE RISK ASSESSMENTS

WHAT IS IT?

A Tree Risk Assessment (TRA) as the name suggests assesses the risk probability of targets beneath or surrounding the tree.

WHY DO I NEED THIS?

TRA’s are needed when the arborist is unable to make a concrete recommendation from a visual inspection of the tree. Additionally, some city municipalities may require a TRA in order to secure a removal permit.

WHO IS IT FOR?

TRA’s can be for any tree but are usually suggested when there is concern that a tree poses a risk of failure and may cause harm if it were to fail.
