Nova Scotia Soil Sampling Service

Last year, the CTCNS Research Team collected and submitted more than 1,000 soil and foliar samples from Nova Scotia Christmas Tree lots through the Soil & Foliar Analysis project in 2021. Due to ongoing interest in soil testing and customized nutrient recommendations, we have decided to offer soil sampling and interpretation support as a service to growers.

We are continuing to take requests for soil sampling in lots. Sampling will take place from Spring to Fall on a first come first serve basis. A fee per sample will be charged to cover the cost of soil testing, our team’s time, and associated travel expenses.

If you would like to have your lot sampled, please reach out to us to schedule a sampling time. [email protected]

If you intend to take and submit your own soil samples, we have plenty of resources available through our webinars, podcasts, and resource pages to help you interpret your results.
