    This workshop will be an advanced look at tree essential elements for tree health care providers. Essential elements will be viewed from soil availability and uptake, through incorporation within the physiological processes of a tree. Coverage will include element formation, defining essentiality, the 19 tree essential elements, new elements which could be found essential in trees, element availability and interactions, element use within a tree, pH issues, and major misdiagnosis problems of element deficiency and toxicity. In addition, a special section will concentrate on the assimilation of nitrogen inside a tree. This presentation is for advanced tree health care providers and with concentrate only on dicot tree physiology. Fertilizer formulation/application and soil element transformations will not be covered. An extensive workshop manual and completion certificate will be provided.
