Soil Injections

Fertilizers, plant growth regulators and some pesticides may be applied to the soil at the root basal for systemic uptake. Basal drench is a rudimentary method of applying these materials and can sometimes be done by the homeowner, such as with an application of imidacloprid to treat smaller Ash trees for EAB control. However, the preferred method of application when absorption through the root system is necessary is by soil injection. Our specialized equipment delivers the material directly to the tree's feeder roots at 8-12" below the soil surface, where research has shown the most uptake of water occurs. The benefit is the assurance that the tree uses as much of the added materials as possible with minimal off target delivery, maximizing your value with the least environmental impact possible.

The Whole Job Was a Success

The whole job was a success to me, from the removing of the trees, the stumps, filling in with dirt, planting of the new tree, trimming the other tree to the cleanup. You did an amazing job, and in record time. You have a hard working crew.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic job you did on my yard. The front tree looks amazing, and the backyard without the trees is a wonderful sight.
