So what is it?
These kinds of interactions between the soil and the matter placed back into it are important because all of the biological activity in that area 100% depends on the organic matter supply. When it’s applied, you’re super-charging your tree’s food supply – and helping it maintain (and use) water more efficiently. That means a happier, healthier tree.
Why is it so important to trees, specifically?
Aside from what we’re sure you’ve already deduced (soil health and the like) – we have always been fans of the natural way of doing things. People depend too much on quick fixes today like fertilizer and the like – and instead of fixing the problem, merely place a band aid that will eventually peel off, exposing the problem once again down the line. We’re trying to get our clients to think more long term. Soil organics can play a massive role in sustaining a tree’s health long term. By using it – you’re setting up and priming the pump of an extremely effective habitat for your tree, by giving it everything it needs to fix a wider range of problems on it’s own over a longer period of time.
The use of organics can also work as a strong deterrent to fungi and other potential infections. They can break down elements that are too large for trees to uptake on their own, and breaks them down into nutrients that plants can use – and in the process carry with them the kinds of special elements that can help make a tree more resilient and healthy.
And happier, healthier, more resistant, self-sustain trees make for long-term enjoyment and minimal work and worry heading forward!
