Tree Soil Management Melbourne – Treespan’s goals of soil management is to improve tree establishment, health, growth and longevity. Here at Treespan we understand that Tree health is affected by many soil characteristics.
Unfortunately the soil’s critical role in plant health is generally ignored in suburban landscapes. It’s best to take a holistic approach and maintain soils with good physical, chemical, and biological characteristics.
Tree Soil Management Melbourne Treespan provide soil management, soil sampling, soil analysis, soil modification, mulching, and tillage. Before any soil management is implemented the soil should be assessed to determine the soil characteristics and conditions that may limit tree or shrub development. After the implementation of soil conservation and modification a follow up assessment is important for evaluating its effectiveness.
Mulching is one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve urban soil quality and tree health. When selecting mulch, organic materials are usually preferred to inorganic materials. Organic mulches moderate soil temperature changes, reduces soil compaction and erosion, and increase soil organic matter, thereby stimulating microbial activity and nutrient availability. Good soil fertility and structure are essential for long-term tree health.
Tree Soil Management Melbourne – Remediation
Tree Soil Management Melbourne – Treatment
Treating soils to add nutrients, adjust pH or improve microbial activity are vital for tree and plant health long-term.
Tree Soil Management Melbourne – Soil Quality
Good soil quality, structure, aeration and nutrients together with micro-organisms form a balanced environment that supports healthy plants and trees. Treespan uses a variety of skills, methods and equipment to re-adjust the balance of your soil. Promoting soil flora and fauna via soil aeration and the application of balanced mixtures of organic materials and extracts, fertilisers and friendly microbial enzymes and bacteria will assist in the breakdown of organic matter and promote nutrient delivery to trees and plants.
Tree Soil Management Melbourne – Soil Compaction
The effects of drought, pedestrian, machine and vehicle traffic on soil is relatively quick and results in long lasting soil compaction. Soil compaction takes place when the soil structure is compressed and air is expelled and water permeability is reduced. This robs the soil micro flora and fauna of essential oxygen and water and dramatically slows or halts the organic regeneration process. Once the organic process is disrupted, plants and trees suffer as feeder roots decay and receive reduced nutrient flows. Suburban trees and plants are particularly affected by soil compaction and display significant decline when faced with compacted soils.
Tree Soil Management Melbourne – Soil Drainage
If you are noticing increased run-off or pooling of water after rains this can be an indication of poor soil structure or soil compaction. Good drainage of soil is essential to tree and plant health as water pooling can exclude essential oxygen and promote fungal diseases.
