Healthy tree roots lead to healthy, thriving trees

Often trees are planted incorrectly, frequently too deep or with excessive mulch piled against the trunk. This can lead to girdling roots, poor growth, pest problems, health decline, or even tree death.

Root collar excavation is a professional removal of soil and mulch from against the tree’s trunk. It is a simple and effective process that an arborist uses to help correct these issues and ensure proper root protection.

When necessary, root pruning and the use of specialized supersonic air tools are also used to preserve the health of a tree.
