Christmas Tree

Profitability Depends on Production Efficiency
Lost time and poor quality trees are unnecessary expenses in an increasingly competitive market. While no "Cookbook for Growing Christmas Trees" exists, the ultimate goal of soil and plant tissue analysis is to help you better understand the dynamics of tree nutrition in order to help you grow the best quality trees possible.

Soil Analysis Packages 

Basic Soil Analysis

Primary purpose is to determine "Pre-Plant" fertility and pH in order to get necessary immobile nutrients incorporated prior to planting.

Includes pH, buffer pH, organic matter, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium

Complete Soil Analysis

Assessment tool for establishing baseline of the critical plant-available nutrients for Christmas trees

Includes pH, buffer pH, organic matter, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, boron, zinc, manganese, an cation exchange capacity (CEC)


pH only

Monitors pH after lime or sulfur applications

Plant Tissue Analysis 

  • Provides the status of nutrients inside the plant
  • Reflects what a plant is actually able to obtain from the soil, not just what is available (as in the soil analysis)
  • Necessary tool for evaluating and fine-tuning fertility management
  • Includes total nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, sodium, aluminum and boron.
