In regards to tree care and maintenance, most property owners are aware that tree trimming and fertilizing are needed to preserve tree health. However, one commonly overlooked service in tree maintenance is to have root flare excavation performed, especially if trees are experiencing diminished growth and poor health. Root girdling occurs when the tree roots begin to circle the trunk of the tree, impacting the tree’s ability to take in vital nutrients. When a tree is suffering from root girdling, Root Flare Excavation is the process by which the soil surrounding the tree base is gently removed to reveal any girdling roots and correct the problem, thus saving the life of the tree.
Root flare excavation is a time-consuming process that not only requires patience and skill, but also specialized equipment to ensure the tree or major roots are not harmed in any way. For this reason, it is crucial to have only professional Certified Arborists handle this project for trees on your residential property. Amateur or mom and pop tree workers do not have the specialized equipment or experience to handle this service without causing harm to the tree or its root system. Worse yet, many basic or amateur tree workers cannot identify the telltale signs of root girdling, and would not even know that root flare excavation is needed. Their inexperience and lack of specialized training would end up resulting in the death of the tree, leading to increased costs for tree removal and tree replacement.
Root Flare Excavation performed by Certified Arborists offers several benefits to residential tree owners. First, tree owners can be assured that their tree’s health, beauty and value will be preserved because of the vital repairs that Root Flare Excavation offers. In today’s volatile real estate market, residential properties with healthy and beautiful trees retain a higher value and are a bigger asset for their owner. In addition, Root Flare Excavation can help restore a tree to full health, saving the property owner from large costs for tree removal and replacement. The tree can thrive and be a wonderful asset to residential properties for years to come. Also, Root Flare Excavation can help prevent trees from becoming vulnerable to invasive insects or trees diseases, which can quickly spread and infect nearby healthy trees on the property.
Winter is the best time to have your trees inspected by Certified Arborists to determine if any of them are vulnerable to breaks, disease or root girdling so that preventative measures like Root Flare Excavation can be performed. By having major tree maintenance done in the winter, it allows trees to have time to properly heal during the dormant months before spring growth expends their energy reserves.
