pyrocanthus soil change

I am renovating a garden which has/had many pyrocanthus.

I have hacked some back and some I must remove.

I think I read somewhere that pyrocanthus can change the chemistry of the surrounding soil - but cannot find an online reference to this.  Maybe it was another shrub that does this.

I shall test the soil before replanting .

Anyone have the answer.

thank you

    If there's been a big pyracantha there for years It's probably exhausted all the nutrients but that's easily remedied.
