Just a short note but a very BIG thank you for the TLC you all gave our old Oak tree last week. Chad & the entire crew are so professional and their concern for our tree and nature in general are evident in the work they do. ”- Crystal C.
The crew did an excellent job, right down to the clean up! They were very polite and easy to work with too. ”- NULL
What is it?
Scientific testing to determine pH, nutrient levels, organic matter content and other items essential to plant health.
Why would it be needed?
Soil analysis is used whenever there is a problem that normal treatments do not resolve. There are times that we are faced with odd nutrient levels (too high or too low), toxic foreign materials present and/or soil-borne pathogens that are only identifiable by professional soil analysis.
- The arborist takes samples from various locations throughout the property to facilitate a composite soil analysis. For a problem area, samples are concentrated within the specific soil area.
- Samples are then sent to well-renowned scientific laboratories for complete testing. Different labs are used depending on the problem at hand.
- Reports are then analyzed by the Preservation Tree Services arborist to determine proper treatments.
- This process normally takes two to three weeks from the date of soil sample collection.
