Healthy roots lead to healthy trees. Many of the tree service problems our arborists encounter start below ground. Often trees are planted incorrectly, frequently too deeply or with excessive mulch piled against the trunk. This can lead to girdling roots, poor growth, pest problems and decline or even tree death.
Root collar excavation, or the professional removal of soil and mulch from against the trunk, is a simple, effective process that an arborist uses to help correct these issues. Root pruning and the use of specialized supersonic air tools are also used when necessary to preserve the health of the tree.
