Root crown excavations are done by using a specialized high pressure air spade to remove the soil around the base of a tree.
What is a root crown?
A tree’s root crown is in between the root system and the trunk. It is also known as the root collar or root flair.
Why do a root crown excavation?
Reducing compaction around the root crown allows maximum uptake of water and nutrients. Organic matter is added around the root zone to maintain decompaction and provide a nutrient recycling environment similar to the forest floor. Exposing the root crown also allows us to identify and address subsurface issues such as girdling roots.
This process needs to be done by a professional as to not damage the roots of a tree. Let Arborlogical Inc evaluate your trees to determine if they are candidates for root crown excavation.
