Root Collar Excavations

All trees big and small should have an exposed root collar. The root collar, or root flare, is the bell shape at base of trees just as they come out of the soil. Tree root collars are routinely buried due to incorrect nursery practices, installation, and/or mulching. This area on the tree is not evolved to be buried, and buried root collars have been correlated with poor tree health. In addition, buried root collars are associated with circling roots that can cut off proper circulation to the tree, and cause the tree to become unstable. Using our Super Sonic Air Knife™ Heartwood Arborists can reveal a trees root collar, allowing the tree to have a breath of fresh air.  Click here for an informational video.
