Bio - Tree & Shrub
Fertilizer, Root Developer & Mycorrhizae Stimulant

The Only Comprehensive “All-In-One” Plant Health Product
Compositional Characteristics Supporting Plant Health Since 1979

1. The Soil is the Basis for all Plant Health First, the soil must be loose enough for an ample, continuous airflow to supply oxygen for the roots, the all important Mycorrhizae and a host of other micro organisms that benefit the plants, keep the soil functioning, and making nutrients available for the use of the plants.

THEREFORE: The most important part of the Green Pro Bio-Tree & Shrub Fertilizer, Root Developer and Mycorrhizae Stimulant is organic material that conditions the soil to be loose and provide food energy for the microorganisms within the soil. The organic materials work to augment the Carbon Cycle by supplying readily available carbon which replaces the natural leaf fall and decomposition typically found in forests, but not in landscapes. The carbon is sourced from humates in sufficient quantities to be effective for short, intermediate and long-term use.

2. The Root System of every plant provides the Foundation for it’s Ability to be Healthy. There is a mountain of evidence, especially in agriculture, that proves that healthy plants resist insect and disease problems.

THEREFORE: The next important organic ingredients are root stimulants to develop healthy and extensive a root systems. With the continued use of Bio-Tree & Shrub, the soil improves further, thus fostering increased root development.

3. Do We Add Mycorrhizae? Not specifically, even though our Bio-Tree & Shrub product does contain latent beneficial microbial life of all kinds.
The reason why we don’t add Mycorrhizae to our product is because Nature has set up a complex system of checks and balances within the soil that is specific for that soil and environment. Adding Mycorrhizae would be of marginal benefit, especially when you consider that there are typically ample microorganisms (Mycorrhizae being only one type) already present in most soils. Even if they are latent, they reestablish themselves as soon as the conditions for their growth are present (carbon for food energy, air flow for oxygen, and appropriate moisture). Microbe populations flourish when conditions are proper.
According to many authorities who have worked with Mycorrhizae for decades, only in soil that has been fumigated, or reclamation soil that is sterile, would the addition of Mycorrhizae make sense.

THEREFORE: The continued use of Bio-Tree & Shrub Fertilizer, Root Developer and Mycorrhizae Stimulant insures the continuance of healthy soil conditions allowing dormant Mycorrhizae and a vast array of other microbes to flourish, providing maximum benefit for all plants in balance with the specific environment in which they must live.

4. Under natural, Forest growing conditions, Nutrients are Recycled through Decomposition, which is not possible in urban and suburban landscapes. To make up for this deficiency, some companies inject man-made nutrients into the soil and root zone. Fertilizers with a high salt index, highly acidic or containing chlorides, are toxic and upset the biological balances within the soil. Also, it is beneficial to the plant to be “fed” in a way that mimics a natural forest floor “feeding.”

THEREFORE: Bio-Tree & Shrub contains N.P.K. nutrients that are compatible with the soil (neutral pH, low salt, and non-chloride), and are released in a slow and “natural” way. This is accomplished by using an adequate amount of humates. The humate molecule captures the raw nutrients, and holds them for the plant’s use. We describe this as a “metering” action (unlike a slow-release action that is dependent upon temperature, moisture and microbial breakdown). The significant difference is that EACH plant takes up ONLY the nutrients that it needs! There is NO force feeding which can result in weak wood and a greater attraction for insect activity because of excessive growth.

There are many, many nutrients within the soil that are literally locked-up; they are present but completely unavailable for use by the plants. The Bio-Tree & Shrub product also contains minerals which act as chelating agents. Chelation makes nutrients available that would otherwise not be available. The minerals also provide over 70 micro-nutrients that most plants need. See the Product Label for more information.

ANOTHER BENEFIT FOR THE PLANTS: The combination of organics promotes more efficient nutrients uptake by the plant. Therefore, less energy is expended.
