Our Root Collar Excavation Services

A tree’s root collar is a crucial point of overall tree health. Our root excavation services carefully and expertly clear away soil, organic matter, and other debris to allow your tree access to light and air. Here’s what we do during a root collar excavation:

  1. Carefully uncover the right amount of root flare using air compression tools to prevent damaging your tree’s root system.
  2. Inspect your tree for signs of girdling roots and prune them away if necessary.
  3. Examine the roots near the tree to ensure they’re growing correctly.
  4. Inspect your tree for signs of disease, deadwood, or insect infestations.
  5. Recommend the best course of action for revitalizing your trees.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do tree roots need oxygen?

Yes. Our Soil Health Care Service addresses poor soil quality, promotes healthy soil aeration, and encourages optimal oxygen and water intake and storage.

How deep do tree roots go?

Most tree roots grow about 6 to 12 inches below the surface and usually reach a maximum depth of three to seven feet, but this varies by species.

Are exposed tree roots bad?

No, exposed roots are not necessarily bad. Proper plant health care can support tree roots both on the surface and below. Cover exposed roots only if they pose a danger, and be cautious not to cover the root collar.

Can you put dirt around a tree trunk?

No, piling dirt or mulch around a tree trunk can lead to several issues including trapped moisture, girdling roots, softened bark on roots, and blocked air and water from reaching the root system.
