Successful establishment at Bromley Cemetery, Christchurch

Project Details

Location Bromley Cemetery, Bromley, Christchurch.
Date of Evaluation 25 May 2021
Evaluated by Dieter Steinegg
Site Conditions Sandy soil profile in hostile environment conditions.
Other High sunshine hours in the summer and extreme frosts in winter
Rate & Method 1.5g/1L soil
TerraCottem Product TerraCottem arbor


Which issues did you have to deal with prior to using the TerraCottem soil conditioning technology in the above applications?
Very dry conditions and difficulty in getting trees to establish and thrive.

What did you want to achieve by using the TerraCottem product(s)?
A greater number of trees establish and develop into healthy specimens.

Which product benefits did you observe?
The first year of establishment was steady. However the site is very exposed to the dry northeast wind and the soil profile is sand. Second year the trees were healthy and producing terminal and lateral branches and budding well.

Did you have a control plot (without TerraCottem) in order to make a comparison?

If not, can you make a comparison with a similar application (but without TerraCottem) from a previous season where you didn't use TerraCottem? If so, what are the differences?
Earlier installations of trees in this area were difficult and there were a lot of tree fatalities. Using TerraCottem, we have found that trees have established well over a two years period and the moisture content in the soil was far better than not using TerraCottem.
