Soil Born Disease

If we suspect that the root system of a tree or shrub has been infected by a soil born pathogen we will extract a representative number of soil samples for lab analysis. To confirm our suspicion we will excavate the soil from the root crown and part of the root system to investigate these areas for evidence of root and crown rot. The analyzed soil samples along with analyzed root samples will confirm the identification of the soil pathogen. We then advise our client as to what the options may be.
