RULES FOR NATURAL TREE CARE
Never feed trees a chemical fertilizer.
Chemicals kills off the bacteria in the soil while at the same time weakening
the health of the tree. Chemicals cause a great deal of stress to trees. Trees require
regular watering. Use a drip system whenever possible. Avoid water trunk of tree. Trees
love slow deep watering.
Always use filtered, well, rain or solarized water
Never use straight city water as it may contain chlorine or some other
chemical that can poison the tree. See Real Goods for their garden filter. See Also Garden
Filter page in appendix in back of book. Allow time for trees to heal The bigger the tree,
the longer it will take to heal. People don't realise that. Just remember that we are
mother nature now.
Raise the Energy Level of the tree!
Besides taking a vacation the addition of compost rich in trace minerals and
bacteria is the best thing you can do to help raise the trees energy levels.. Trees also
love Rock Dust. Also Foliar feeding them will provide for them the fastest source of food
and energy therefore it important that you only feed them nutrition that reliefs stress
and not causes stress. Understand?...1
Know the law of cause and effect.
Control the cause and you control the effects. Trees with high energy levels
are not attacked by pests.
Don't cut down trees.
Know your trees.
Plant only trees that will grow in your area. Give your favorite tree a name.
Talk to you tree regulary. Plant only other plants that will grow in harmony with each
other. Use no chemical fertilisers or you'll damage the tree.
Protect trees from dogs.
Dog urine is very acidic and will injure the tree's root system. Water, apply
compost, mulch. Watch for any signs of problems.
The soil will get packed so the water and air may not reach the roots. Apply
compost once per year and a layer of mulch. You seldom have to turn over the soil, as a
matter of fact, trees preff it if you layered the compost and mulch and not dig around the
base of the tree. Provide plenty of mulch. Most trees naturally mulch themselves.
Protect tree's from people!
People cause the most damage to trees then any thing else!
Do not poison the soil.
Nuff said here

1 The very same rule applies to the human budy. Beware of foods that you eat that cost you
more then what you get from it( ie. Your body takes more energy to get rid of the stuff
then it got from digesting it) ! This always leads to poor health (of plant and people).
