The Texas Chapter ISA is hosting the first in a series of workshops on soils, fertilization, ammendments and sustainable practices for whole tree care. In the February 2020 ISA Arborist News article by Dr. Chris Fields-Johnson’s he states: An estimated 80% of above ground issues in trees are caused by issues below ground, namely problems related to roots and soil. Join Dr. Fields-Johnson at the first of the series on Healthy Soils, Healthy Trees. Forest trees connect to soils through complex relationships with pore space, organic matter, minerals and microbial life. Urban trees often struggle when these relationships break down as a consequence of compaction and organic matter losses. We can reconnect trees with soils and reestablish these relationships through practices which loosen the soil and add organic materials.
