Soil Health Programs

As part of Collier Arbor Care’s sustainability initiative we are proud to announce our Soil Health program that improves poor soils by promoting healthy soil biology, providing plant nutrition and is all organic. Our program features the use of compost tea, organic fertilizers and Mycorrhizae (a beneficial root fungus) to sustainably enhance our landscape soils. Our three times per year program promotes healthy soil biology that naturally releases plant nutrients, improves soil structure and helps decrease harmful disease and pest problems. This innovative all natural program replaces the traditional approach of using commercial fertilizers that are often over applied and do little to enhance the biological activity that is necessary for sustainable soil
building and nutrient cycling.

If you can only do one thing to promote the health and beauty of your landscape plants the Soil Health Program is it! Call us today to schedule a Collier Arborist to visit and assess your landscape and find out how our all natural program will protect and benefit your plants and soil sustainability.


Organic Fertilizer

Our organic fertilizer is comprised of fish hydrolysate which provides a slow release form of nitrogen as well as a healthy balance of 18 macro nutrients and more than 60 micro nutrients and trace minerals necessary for healthy plant growth.


Beneficial Mycorrhizal fungi, combined with a root stimulant containing humates, nitrogen fixing bacteria, vitamins and biostimulant to emulate forest soils. Improves feeder root development, water and nutrient absorption and helps to protect against some soil diseases.


Soil Health Care

Compost tea, fertilizer and Mycorrhizae applications are used to improve the soil biology in spring, summer and fall to all trees and ornamentals.

Targeted Soil Health Care

Same as above, but treating only designated “signature” trees/plants in your landscape.
