How Does Our Drought Mitigation Plan Work?

Our drought management program focuses on effective water conserving procedures that won’t starve your trees. We work to reverse the effect of limited water—which can lead to dry, compact soil that reduces the amount of water available to trees. Instead, we work to ensure that the maximum amount of water allotted to each tree is utilized to its full potential.

How does it work?

  • Necessary water estimation: We measure the diameter of each tree at breast height (DBH), and plan to allot ten gallons per inch to keep the tree healthy and hydrated.
  • Soil conditioning: We carefully condition the soil around your trees in all directions, allowing water to quickly and efficiently reach the root system before evaporating.
  • Stress reduction: We also apply stress reduction techniques to help your tree self-manage during times of drought.
  • 30 day cycle: We can repeat drought mitigation treatments every 30 days or as needed.

We can also help you implement tree growth regulators that can help your trees remain healthy during a drought. Tree growth regulators tell the tree where to concentrate its energy. When a drought occurs, regulators reallocate energy from shoot growth to root growth, increasing tree’s ability to absorb water and nutrients and reducing the nutrient expenditure. Slow-release potassium can also be applied to replenish the nutrients your trees use to gather, store, and utilize energy. Furthermore, we can help you utilize proper watering techniques and switch from turf to mulch in order to make the most of the limited water you have.
