Enhancing the Root System
See video on bottom of page!
Over 50% of a tree’s living tissue is found below the ground. The fine root mass that provides the uptake of water and nutrients is located in the top 6 inches of the soil. Properly addressing any problems with the root zone will improve the overall health of the tree. To perform this service, a specialized tool known as an air knife is used. The air knife works in conjunction with an air compressor, and pushes air into the soil at supersonic speeds without damaging trunk or root tissue. At Tawa Tree we use this tool to address soil compaction due to heavy foot traffic, construction traffic, and even lawn mowers. When the soil is de-compacted, water, oxygen, and nutrients will become more readily available to the tree. Root enhancement will create ideal growing conditions for your beautiful urban trees.
