Remediating Underground Root Problems:
Often times a tree in decline as the result of underground complications. Soil compaction, SGR(Stem Girdling Roots), construction damage, or even improper planting practice can all result in poor root function leading to tree decline. We use an air spade (high volume compressed air) to break up and remove soil from around the root area, in order to mitigate SGR, soil compaction, construction damage, or other issues that have been preventing the tree from properly absorbing or conducting water, oxygen, and nutrients to the rest of the tree. We also sometimes use a liquid soil injector to de-compact and aerate soils in and around the tree's root zone, as well as inject fertilizers when a soil test has shown a deficiency.
