WE PROVIDE EXPERT ROOT COLLAR EXCAVATION SERVICES

One thing few property owners consider when caring for their lawns is the effect mulching and compaction has on the health of the tree. Too much mulch and the nutrient flow won’t reach the root system, leaving the tree vulnerable to attacks from pests and tree diseases. Fortunately, AKA Tree Service offers a method designed to compensate for the effects of improper mulching practices: root collar excavation. Atlanta residents can find a great amount of benefit from root collar excavation and soil decompaction methods.

Root Collar Excavation

 

SIGNS YOUR TREE MAY NEED ROOT COLLAR EXCAVATION

For the inexperienced, planting trees can be a difficult task. Doing so properly can mean the difference between a healthy tree and a tree that dies. There are many culprits for a weak tree, but many begin with the roots. Root collar excavation and soil decompaction address issues caused by improper planting. You might need root collar excavation and soil decompaction if:

YOUR TREE’S LEAVES ARE YELLOW, EVEN DURING SPRING AND SUMMER:

One of the most telling signs that something is amiss, this can indicate a larger problem.

THE LEAVES ARE UNDERSIZED:

Each species of tree has particularly-sized leaves. When we perform an inspection, we’ll check to make sure leaf growth is on par with expectations.

YOUR TREE IS NOT GROWING AS IT SHOULD BE:

One way we measure the overall health of your tree is with its growth rate. A tree that is not growing as it should, may have been planted incorrectly.

PEST ATTACKS ARE BECOMING MORE FREQUENT:

Pest attacks can doom a tree, so it is of the utmost importance that you contact us if something is amiss.

STEM GIRDLING ROOTS HAVE FORMED:

Stem girdling roots are lateral roots that wrap around the tree and squeeze the trunk. This can compress the sapwood and destroy the tree.
