    Need some help on what to do with a clients yews. They suggested an acid treatment. They do not get fertilized or any other help as of now. Want to start something. They are mature and we prune them regularly, but they have slow growth and some bear spots on them.

    I use lesco Arbor Green and chelated iron for all trees and shrubs. It needs to be injected into the rootzone. Yews do require soil that is on the acidic side, but I would check the ph first before adding an acidifying agent.
