The Effect of Grass on Trees – September 2019: Part 11

We’re continuing with our series on the effects of grass on trees: Most of us only associate clean air with trees. Grass also cleans our air and is often overlooked.  If you’re looking for guidance on how your lawn might be affecting your trees, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Lawns are perceived to leach fertilizers into our water supply. Research indicates that when appropriate rates of fertilizers and pesticides are applied to a dense stand of grass, there is very little runoff or leaching from the fertilized site. “Whenever N is applied to a site, there is the possibility that some of it may run off into surface waters. However, several recent studies indicate that N carried in runoff from turf areas is very low, that is because turf is comprised of many closely spaced plants forming a relatively closed canopy over the soil surface.”
