Tree Health

This is directly linked to soil quality, its estimated that >80% of all tree health problems are due to poor soil conditions. Therefore, soil quality and composition plays a crucial role for healthy trees. Compacted soil, poor drainage, nutrient deficiencies and soil pollution can all negatively impact a trees ability to absorb water and nutrients, which in turn leads to poor tree health and decline.

Using the revolutionary Vogt Geo injector, we can decompact soil, improve drainage and add nutrients to give trees the best soil conditions for growth and tree health.

how does the geo injector work

1. Soil Decompaction

Firstly, we drill down into the soil approximately 65cm. We then inject high pressure air at 7bar (100psi), this de-compacts the soil and creates voids

2. Injection of enriched biochar

We then inject Enriched Biochar into the voids, this further de-compacts but fills the voids with material that does not degrade allowing air and water to pass easily to the root ball of the tree.

3. Improved Water Drainage

Water falling on the gound now flows into the voids, as Biochar is honeycomb shaped it absorbs the water. Holding it for when the tree needs it.

4. Improved Aeration

Trees require a soil with good aeration after Soil Decompaction this allows air to circulate freely around the root ball. Add sunlight and water to create a healthy tree

BENEFITS OF ENRICHED BIOCHAR

Easy To Use

It's easy to apply and, because of its water holding qualities, it means less maintenance of plants, crops and lawns. It also means you'll save a bit on those water bills.

Permanent Effects

Biochar is so high in carbon that it doesn't break down over time, meaning one application is all you need to permanently improve your soil.

Environmentally Friendly

1 tonne of biochar in the ground is the equivalent of 3 tonnes of carbon dioxide permanently sequestered from the atmosphere!

Improves Plant Health

It's easy to apply and, because of its water holding qualities, it means less maintenance of plants, crops and lawns. It also means you'll save a bit on those water bills.

An Example of where we apply

On average we inject 1kg of Enriched Biochar blend per 1m2 of ground.

Each injection point connects to the next, creating mini soakaways allowing drainage and aeration across the complete area injected.

The oak transformed to full health within 12 months.

The London Borough of Bexley’s Tree and Nature Conservation team called upon Apex Soil Solutions;

to bring back to good health the Bexley Charter oak. Despite having a root protection zone erected, having mulch applied every year and even air-spading in the past, the Charter Oak was showing diminishing vitality and a reduced leaf area index.

Apex used their cutting edge Geo-Injector to drill down to 1.2m deep all around the tree base. Apex was able to decompact the soil and create pockets to be backfilled simultaneously with enriched biochar that completely encompassed the root zone.
