TXDoT’s Organic Major Thoroughfares Tree Project

Total Trees injected in Houston: 123,034 and counting!

We want the trees to quickly establish in sub-standard, harsh roadside ground and grow vigorously.The trees are injected with biological innoculants, including mycorrhizal fungi soon after planting. Then specially formulated bio-stimulation blends are foliar applied 3 times over the next 1.5 years. Take a look at ectomycorrhizal growing as a consequence of SGTX tree injections.

Vibrant color for both trees and wildflowers along Houston's Hwy 59 portion that SGTX worked.

spacerWildflowers were also planted along the highways. While SGTX works with both Liquid Compost Extract (LCE) and Aerated Compost tea, we prefer the use of LCE in this type of situation. We believe the sheer vibrancy of color and number of species responding are much greater with the use of LCE.

Hats off to the TXDOT’s Houston Area Landscape Architects! It takes a team to conceptualize, plan, go out for bids and have these big projects turn out well! SGTX is proud of our contribution – the ‘correct’ life in the soil that makes the plants healthy and able to survive in these harsh conditions. Even IKE didn’t uproot this part of the project.

Houstonians! Watch this roadside changing plant and color symphony with pride.
