I'm thinking about putting some Virginia Pine (Xmas trees) on my land in Marshall Texas (Harrison County). The soil in the area is said to be acidic so I got a soil sample done and here are the results (Texas A&M AgEx):

pH: 6.7
Conductivity: 100
N: 12
P: 15
K: 32
Ca: 972
Magnesium: 50
Sulfur: 10
Sodium: Zero

Anybody know if this soil is ready for Virginia Pines and if not, what fertilizers will I need to get it ready?

If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses - Henry Ford. Tiny ad:
