I have been using Medicap Fe trunk implants very successfully to fight
iron chlorosis in my many pin oak trees for 15 years. Soil samples
show my pH to be 7.3 minimum and 7.6 near our long concrete cement
driveway. The soil report recommendation is to add 32 pounds of
sulphur (sulfur) to a depth of 12 inches per 1000 square feet (or 8
pounds to a 3 inch depth). Several internet sources recommend putting
the sulphur in approx. 12 inch deep holes in a 2 foot by 2 foot grid
around the tree. They also suggest a 1 to 1 ratio of sulphur and iron
sulfate (ferrous sulphate/copperas) to add iron in addition to
lowering the pH.
Question 1: Will the localized high sulphur concentrations do harm to
Question 2: What is the highest sulphur application rate for grass
(lawn) (bluegrass and fescue) without damaging it?
