Many property owners don’t realize the fragility of their tree’s roots system when they trench near their trees. Avoid damaging the roots of your trees by contracting with Raritan Valley Tree Service for arborist-supervised air spading service in Middlesex County, NJ, Somerset County NJ, and surrounding communities.
While your trees appear hardy and robust, their roots systems can be easily damaged, which increases the chances of decay, disease, and insect infestation. Some preventable causes of root damage include the following:
Soil compaction due to overwatering, construction, or the composition of the soil
Disturbance, nicks, or severing of roots during trenching or excavation
Trees that are not planted deep enough in the soil may grow weak root system due to exposure to the elements and pressure on the soil.
As an arborist-led tree service, our team at Raritan Valley Tree Service recommends customers take advantage of our professional air spading services. Air spading involves using highly compressed air to break up compacted soil around tree roots without damaging them. Due to the use of pneumatic equipment that releases air moving at 1200 mph, air spading is not suited for DIY projects, especially since specialized safety equipment is needed. Our certified arborist advises the use of air spading in a variety of situations, including diagnosing and treating trees with signs of root problems and when doing excavation work.
