Soil invigoration is a treatment for declining and construction-impacted trees. The main cause for the damage is often compacted or poor-quality soil. When a tree is left untreated, the damage will compound because of additional stress which could initiate the mortality spiral.
Some of the symptoms of soil compaction include:
- Yellowing of leaves
- Premature fall coloration
- Overall decline
- Undersized foliage
- Stunted growth
Soil compaction is so harmful that many trees cannot survive its effect, often times leading to a slow decline and eventual death.
Some conditions to look for, that may require soil invigoration, include the following:
- Little to no topsoil
- Compacted soil
- Standing water
- Overall decline of landscape
- Difficulty establishing turfgrass
- Cracking soil
