Due to the use of high-bred varieties in agriculture, intensive fertilization, high stocking densities and biocides the capacity for self-regulation of soil ecosystems is degrading increasingly.

Typical features of urban soils are topsoil compaction, humus poverty and a coarse-skeleton-rich mixture of rubble, gravel, clay and sand. In urban areas soils are dominated by calcareous substrates. The result is a strong reduction of the microbial activity in the soil of city trees.

This has adverse effects on beneficial, including many antagonists (natural enemies), since the balance between pathogens and antagonists shifts to the detriment of the latter.
The resulting high infection pressure in soils enhances the development of resistance formation of soil pathogens.
Any damage to trees - either by pruning, excavation of roots and collision damage - is a potential portal of entry for wood-destroying fungi.
