Soil Testing and Soil Care

Tree and plant health starts with soil health.

At Arborwood we practice a holistic approach to tree health care – we don't just treat the symptoms of a problem, we get to the root of it. Promoting healthy tree growth means creating a healthy soil system, and we have several services to do just that:

Soil Testing

Take the guesswork out of finding the problem. Arborwood will analyze soil biology and nutrient levels, by an accredited lab when necessary, in order to get an accurate picture of soil needs.


One of best ways to promote good soil for the long-term. You'll also reduce maintenance and weed growth. Arborwood uses a vertical mulching technique to boost nutrients and organic matter in the soil.

Air Spading

A new state-of-the-art technique which excavates dirt using compressed air, allowing for greater accuracy and less surrounding damage.

Pre-Construction Root Inspections

Before unforeseen problems arise, let Arborwood inspect your construction zone for potential damage to tree roots.

Whether you need ongoing maintenance fertilizing, or immediate care for declining specimens, talk to our knowledgeable staff about customizing our services to suit your specific needs.
