Soil Management

The single common denominator that all garden and landscape plants share is their relationship with the soil. Soil quality is vital to the successful establishment, growth, and maturity of the plants in your landscape. Soil is more than just the sum of its parts; it is a complex integration of its physical, chemical, and biological properties. Unfortunately, most of our New England soil types are nutrient deficient. At Tree Specialists, we work to restore soil health and fertility through:

  • soil testing & fertilization
  • soil aeration & organic matter amendment
  • mulching

Over 15 years of conducting soil tests have confirmed that the majority of our region's soils are excessively acidic and low in potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Further, our soils tend to be sand-based and do not retain moisture. This also limits the growth of beneficial microorganisms, critical to sustaining soil fertility over the long term.

The talented team at Tree Specialists blend a deep knowledge of design, infrastructure and botany to achieve superior results. Our home and farm landscape reflect this synergy and a true respect for the land.— Dr. John D. Halamka and Kathy Halamka, Unity Farm, Sherborn
