Saved River Birch on Charles St. Naperville, IL

On the right side of the photo is a very large (60+ foot) River Birch that had all yellow leaves from the lack of iron. On June 8, 2006, I injected it with my special iron formula. On June 20th, 2006, only 12 days later you can see the visable effects of the iron.
The tree is now all green and it has produced many more leaves and it's headed for survival. A River Birch with yellow leaves like this one will not "overwinter" and will get "winterkilled" in the spring of 2007. A "healthy green" tree of this size can easily add over $8000 to $10,000 the value of this property.

This is my house. The iron injections work great, but generally must be done every 2-3 years to keep the tree healthy. It is worth the money to have a large, healthy shade tree by the house!

I have a large maple tree - believe planted in about 1970 that is about 4' diameter. The leaves started getting yellow about two years ago and looking at your data and talking to a gentelmen here at work makes me think it may be iron deficient.

Also, have two large pine trees with the sap pockets.

What would you suggest?
