Trees require varying quantities of different nutrients at certain stages of development. If any essential nutrient is not available when required, growth and physiological functions can be impacted, reducing the viability and longer-term production capability of the tree. Soil pH influences the availability of plant nutrients in the soil and biological activity. Often nutrient availability is constrained by the pH of soils being too acidic or alkaline.
