Many different bacteria/fungi have a sybiotic relationship with roots. Any
gardencenter will sell garden/bean innoculant.  It makes a large diference
with beans peas ect.  but i doubt it would help any other plants much.  If
you want it for trees just go to any well established grove or orchard and
dig up a shovelful of dirt.  Bury it in your yard  and the colonies of
fungus will spread from it.
