Yew ok

A section of the 300-year-old great yew hedge at Powis Castle in Wales has been treated for chlorosis, a condition believed to have been caused by soil compaction around the roots, depriving the affected tree of the vital air, water and nutrients needed for strong and healthy growth.
The selected treatment involved intensive decompaction of the rootzone by Terravent machine followed by injection of a blend of 18 beneficial Mycorrhizal fungi, natural fertilisers and organic liquid amendments into the soil.
Commissioned by Adrian Lovatt, head gardener at the National Trust-owned property, the treatment was carried out by tree and plant healthcare specialist, Eastwood Tree Services, on behalf of Telford-based Amenity Land Solutions (ALS), who recommended and supplied from its Natural Solutions range all of the organic products that were used to treat the affected tree.
