The goal of the workshop is to help practitioners develop some applied skills in soil management for urban trees. This workshop will include hands-on work for assessing soils. We will apply this soil assessment information for developing a prescription fertilization plan. We will also use this information to learn how to assess and address urban soil compaction. The workshop will also include an introduction and time for wrap-up and discussion.
