  • Compacted urban soils improved with composts have long-term benefits for tree growth

    Composting to compacted urban soils can provide a lasting effect that aids tree growth, new research indicates. Urban soils improved with added organic material are less compacted after five years compared with soils that have not been treated with organic composts, the study suggests. Urban soils are often compacted from the construction and repair of buildings, roads and pavements. Compacted ...
