TREE Fund Webinar Series: Soil Profile Rebuilding: Rehabilitating Compacted Soils
Arborists and urban foresters are frequently faced with tree planting in poor quality soils that have been damaged by scraping and grading during land development or construction. These poor soils not only limit tree growth and slow establishment, but also impair the resilience of urban trees in the face of both drought and heavy rains. TREE Fund has recently completed a series of research projects evaluating a soil rehabilitation technique known as Soil Profile Rebuilding that can be used to remediate soils on site. The presentation will provide an overview of this technique, which is also available in the form of a written specification to allow for easy adoption.
