We believe that soil matters and is at the heart of life. We also believe that Biochar will be part of the solution to climate change. Greentree Soils and Biochar are good for plants AND good for the earth.
It takes physics, chemistry, and biology to make a great soil. Our proprietary and patented processes take care of it all, harnessing biology to optimize plant growth.
We use coconut coir instead of peat because of its superior water-holding and wettability. Coir is a sustainable resource while peat is extracted from peatlands, destroying an important carbon store and natural habitat.
The coco we use is OMRI and RHP registered. It has been hydrated with reverse osmosis water and buffered to remove salts, ensuring a premium quality product, whether used alone or as part of a soil blend.
GreenTree soils are:
- Made by hand in Ithaca, N.Y.
- Created in small batches.
- Biologically activated - our aerated composting system encourages beneficial bacteria to flourish.
- Backed by science.
We have the know-how and flexibility to make custom blended soil mixes and horticultural media. Whether for 1 cubic yard or a trailer load, we'll work from your recipe or help you design a mix to suit your unique needs. Choose one of our existing blends below or contact us for details and pricing on custom blends,larger orders or to carry our soils in your retail store and ask about our custom labeling program.

A Coco-rich soil with peat, perlite, and a starter nutrient charge. This is the soil for people who use high-porosity peat products. Less peat is better for the environment, and Coco ups the waterholding without waterlogging.
