Biochar and compost equally improve urban soil physical and biological properties and tree growth, with no added benefit in combination

Soil compaction can be a major impediment to tree growth as it damages soil physical and biological properties and reduces plant available water. This may result in trees that are more vulnerable to seasonal water stress…
