What is the Tree Growth Program?
The Tree Growth Program is an easy and affordable approach to maintaining healthy green spaces. The program addresses the 3 critical areas affecting tree reestablishment. These are known as the Bio-Geo-Mineral interactions in soils. The program’s 3 part system will fortify a strong foothold for your trees and fast track the handoff back to nature.
How does the Tree Growth Program work?
The Tree Growth Program is composed of patented scientifically-based solutions designed to assist with the most challenging infield conditions. The formulations have been proven to alleviate environmental stresses such as compaction, low organic matter, heat stress, low microbial activity, and poor water infiltration. By addressing the biogeochemical interactions in soils, the Tree Growth Program will ensure the best chances that your trees reach their fullest genetic potential. The result – healthy, mature specimens providing effective canopy cover and sinking maximum carbon.

How is Beneblend SC applied?
Beneblend SC is a soil drench application. Mix 1.5 ml of Beneblend SC per litre of water. Shake Beneblend vigorously before portioning. The product can be applied as a concentrate and evenly dispersed around the root ball but must be watered in. Use water as a carrier to allow the product to saturate the root zone for optimum effects.
How is Acclim8 applied?
Acclim8 is a soluble powder designed as a soil drench application. Mix 4 grams of Acclim8 per litre of water. Deep root injection is ideal for Acclim8 and depending on the porosity of the soil, concentrating the product is ok. (EX. For a 1-2 inch caliper tree, mix 20 grams in 10L of water per tree) The product can also be applied in its powder concentrate form and evenly dispersed around the root ball but must be watered in. Use water as a carrier to allow the product to saturate the root zone for optimum effects.
How is Hydr8 applied?
Hydr8 is a granular soil amendment to be used at planting in the bottom of the hole and surrounding area around the rootball. (See “rates for Hydr8” for different tree sizes) For existing trees/shrubs, core/dig holes 6-12 inches deep around the main rootball out to the branch dripline and backfill with the product. If coring is not ideal, Hydr8 can be applied to the surface soil around the rootball and steel raked in until it disappears.
Do I have to buy both Beneblok and Restor8 together?
Yes! One is the microbes (Beneblok) and the other is the food (Restor8) for them. Think of them like a Pilot and a Navigator. Since Beneblok is a broadspectrum consortium composed of many microbes, depending on the available food sources, different populations can excel which may not be the microbes of choice. Restor8 is specially formulated to instruct a select group of microbes most beneficial to turfgrass systems.
