What is Mykorrhiza?
Quote from Wikipedia:
"The term Mycorrhiza (from the ancient Greek words μυκησ (mykos) = fungus and ριζα (rhiza) = root) is used to describe a form of symbiosis of fungi and plants, in which a fungus is in contact with the fine root system of a plant.
The mycorrhiza fungi provide the plant with nutrient salts and water and in return receive a portion of the assimilates produced by photosynthesis in the (green) plants. Compared with the plant, the mycorrhiza fungi have a much greater capacity to release nutrients and water from the soil. This can substantially improve the supply above all of water, nitrogen and phosphate to the plant, which can have a visible effect especially in extreme locations.
Many plant species are reliant on specific mycorrhiza fungi for optimum growth. ..."

Functioning mycorrhiza are an indicator of the health of the tree
Cause and effect are often confused in the discussion about mycorrhiza. A healthy tree forms its mycorrhiza by itself, while a diseased tree loses them.
Inoculation with mycorrhiza spores fights the symptom and not the cause! First the tree must be restored to health and then it can be supported in the formation of its mycorrhiza with an inoculation. In new planting it will suffice to add a little soil from the root area of a healthy old tree as an “inoculation”.
Incorrect care, for example applying a nitrogenous mineral fertiliser, can destroy the mycorrhiza symbiosis.
WALDLEBEN detoxifies the soil by trapping heavy metals and promotes soil activity by increasing the colonisation density of microorganisms. It promotes the biological equilibrium in the tree and the soil, thereby creating the conditions for a functional mycorrhiza symbiosis. The ground soaked with WALDLEBEN acts as a protective shield for the tree and its mycorrhiza.
WALDLEBEN does not act directly against harmful fungi or other pests, but stimulates the growth and vitality of the plant cells. “Altered amino acid patterns” are formed in the plant cell with which the tree can fend for itself. This indirect yet powerful action against parasitic fungi such as honey fungus or laetiporus sulphureus, or against “downy mildew”, is extensively documented. This mode of action does not adversely affect any colonisation of symbiotic organisms such as mycorrhiza desired by the tree.
