Burlington, ON evaluates beneficial soil conditions for tree transplants with Young Tree Pilot Study

Burlington, ON Young Tree Pilot Study Transplants Soil

In Progress

Burlington added bacteria and Mycorrhizal fungi to the soil at tree transplant sites on Tremineer Avenue and Juniper Avenue. These naturally occurring additives support root recovery after plantings. A three-year study with Lallemand Plant Care and Vineland Research Institute will determine if the smaller trees benefit from new soil conditions. If successful, the pilot creates a blueprint for cost-efficient canopy development through reduced transplant shock.
