Soil Testing on 50 Acre Christmas Tree Farm

Good Morning, A customer called with questions about testing soil on his 50 acre Christmas Tree Farm. I gave him the general information, $12 cost for each soil box, instructions on collecting the soil, etc. Is the regular soil sample the only testing he needs to have done, or should he request other soil tests along with the regular soil test. I have his contact information and will respond to him when I hear from you.

blackening aborvitae

Don -- I recently had this problem with my arborvitae. I called MSU Horticultural Center. They weren't sure but told me the amount of water certain trees need. I thoroughly soaked my arborvitae to the root. I saturated for 10 minutes right at the trunk of every tree. I have 65 of them 7' tall just planted this April. They were doing fine during the rainy season. We haven't had rain for about a month. I watered with a soaker hose for couple hours twice a week, but this was not enough. After I thoroughly watered, the very next day they looked like new trees. Lack of water is definitely the reason for blackening leaves. Its not about how often you water, but that you should give the trees a deep watering about every 3 days during hot dry summer. These trees will need watering like this even the second year. Barb
