Mycorrhizal Fungi (aka PHC Tree Saver) is specifically designed to reduce transplant stress while improving soil hydration and fertility. It’s applied to the root zone of trees and shrubs at planting. Five species of mycorrhizal fungi and six species of beneficial bacteria are packed into this formula to improve plant nutrition provide sustainable soil fertility.
Mycorrhizal fungi serve as a secondary root system to 99% of the earth’s plants. Mycorrhizae extend themselves far out into the soil to extract nutrients and water for their host plant. In return, the plant supplies the mycorrhizal fungi sugars on which to live. Trees and plants with thriving “mycorrhizal root” systems are better able to survive and grow in stressful man-made environments. With a lack of available water, low nutrients and organic matter, urban and suburban environments are stressful for plants. Recent breakthrough advances in biotechnology enable us to create a “natural forest soil ecosystem” for your backyard.
Mycorrhizal fungi is a natural organic additive that will give a powerful health boost to your trees. This naturally occurring fungi forms a symbiotic relationship with most tree and plant roots growing in native forests or woodlands. Mycorrhizal fungi helps plants exchange nutrients and moisture which can significantly reduce loss and decline of trees due to poor soil conditions and drought. It is not 100% necessary to make your tree survive, but considering most urban areas and home sites are deficient of this beneficial fungi, it would provide an enormous enhancement for your tree’s survival, overall health and growth rate. (Apply one ounce of mycorrhizal fungi per tree for best results. Trees with a caliper of 1 inch or more require 3 ounces per tree.)
