Tree-Starter™

tree starterNaturally complete tree nutrition

Tree-Starter™ offers a three-pronged support system for soil biology. Firstly, it supplies a wide range of food sources for soil life including humates, kelp (seaweed) and compost. Secondly, it retains moisture and provides a home-base for beneficial organisms through the inclusion of zeolite and rock minerals.

Finally, highly paramagnetic materials are included in the formula to stimulate microbial proliferation. In addition to this trio of benefits, the compost component also inoculates a new workforce of beneficial microbes into the soil.

Key Benefits:

  • Complete tree starter nutrition including trace elements.

  • 15 kg bag for easy use in the field.
  • Suitable for conventional and sustainable forestry.
