Root Excavation & Pruning

Using our Tree Spade, a device which removes soil from around roots using high-velocity air, the root system and all of its problems are laid bare for analysis and pruning.

Root Pruning

Girdling roots are thought to be caused by poor nursery or planting practices, limited rooting area or sprinklers trained on the trunk. They can cause the tree to decline and die.

Soil Aeration & Amending

The Air Spade is used for remediating soil compaction in trees’ root zones, a technique called Radial Trenching.

Non-invasive Trenching

We can also use the Air Spade as an alternative to traditional trenching practices.
