Last year I began restoration work using fire mimicry on a stand of oaks in Hillsborough, CA. I did some clearing of woody understory and moss removal from the trunks, and added alkaline-rich minerals and compost tea to the soils. I also applied a lime spray to the trunks.
Here are the results after just one year.
Please feel free to share this blog with any of your friends who care about their oaks. All the materials in the fire mimicry treatments involve natural, non-toxic compounds typically used in organic agriculture.
