Samnik & Ballard Preserve Four Grand Oaks
Samnik and Ballard were selected to preserve four highly visible grand oak trees in the cities of Sarasota, Florida and Tampa, Florida. Their technique of applying soil on top of existing roots to regenerate and grow new roots is beyond cutting-edge technology and will be implemented on these subject trees. The old dirt, aged over a century, is first removed as part of the overall treatment plan; much like repotting a houseplant, except the soil required is typically 50 cubic yards. Tissue tests reveal to the parts per million what nutrients are and are not present inside the tree biology. Deficient nutrients are then added to the tree in chelate form. The most recent and highly publicized use of this technique was the historic Baranof oak in Safety Harbor, Florida. This unique improvement approach to tree preservation was discovered accidentally by Joe over 20 years ago. He and Lori have perfected this approach now used on highly visible and valuable trees throughout the southeastern United States.
