What is Soil Primer?
Soil Primer® is a fertilizer made from forest trees. After thinning out trees for fire mitigation and forest health you are left with what was once considered useless material. That material is chipped to a small size and then processed in our patented apparatus. The process is called Static Enhanced Processing (SEP). We use Static Electricity to super dry and turn the matter into extremely fine particles. The tree particles retain all of the nutrients that made the original tree grow. Trees in Colorado have been harvesting nutrients for about 80 years on average. Now these nutrients can be easily used again by crops, house plants and vegetable gardens. The alternative to SEP processing is to burn the tree waste and generate air pollution or leave it to remain a fire hazard. Soil Primer® is truly a “green” innovation. The SEP process uses very little energy to manufacture the product. This process is also the best case scenario for carbon sequestration. Trees absorb carbon from the atmosphere. Through photo synthesis the carbon turns into cellulose – plant tissue. Soil Primer® returns that cell building food to the ground where it helps plants thrive and scrub more carbon out of the air. It also contributes other organic material and nutrients to the earth aiding overall soil fertility.
