Soil decompaction is a process where soil particles are removed to the top of the soil layer or removed from the plant roots. This process makes it possible for plants to absorb nutrients in their natural state, without the presence of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers. When there is a lack of nutrients in the soil, plants begin to wilt or die and eventually rot. There are two types of decompression; chemical and organic.
Soil Decompaction – Tree Preservation – Root Restoration
Chemical decomposition process is usually done with the use of soil treatment products. One of the most common products used in soil decomposition is fertilizer. Other examples are lime, humus, and compost. Organic decomposing is a process where decomposing plants are combined with other organisms like worms, micro-organisms and microbes to restore the original soil structure. It also provides the plant with the nutrients it needs in order to grow well. It can either be a mechanical process that consists of mechanical digging or a biological one that involves mechanical or biological composting.
The soil that must be decomposed includes organic material like leaves, branches and soil itself. This organic material consists of bacteria, fungi and micro-organisms that are present in the soil. These decompose the nutrients and minerals in the soil and then they are reintroduced to the soil. This is why organic fertilizers are beneficial to plants because they help plants absorb nutrients and minerals in their natural form.
