Before: Prior to the excavation, the soil and mulch were mounded up around the base of the tree.

During: While using the air tool, the root collar is being exposed.

Fibrous Roots Exposed:: Small, adventitious, fibrous roots grew in the excess soil and mulch around the tree. These roots need to be cleared away to provide space for the root flare to grow.

After: After the excess soil, mulch and roots were taken away, the root flare is at the proper height.

Preventative Root Collar Excavation

Excess soil and mulch around the trunk of a tree will cause unseen problems for individual trees. By using a compressed air system to move this excess material away, problematic roots were taken away in order to improve the health and longevity of the tree.
