In an urban environment, infrastructure elements can be damaged by encroaching roots. That’s why root management is an essential practice to stimulate root development in trees stressed from soil compaction and to prevent roots from being injured or diseased.Contact Us
How We Do It
We use root stimulating treatments and a specialized tool.
The skilled professionals at Townsend Arborcare safely loosen dense or compacted soils from the root system to improve soil conditions and promote healthier root growth and development.
Why We Do It
Roots are integral to the growth and development of trees.
Roots store carbohydrates, absorb water and minerals, and provide anchor and support. When it comes to managing roots in an urban environment, it is important to not only maintain the health and safety of a tree or plant but to also provide a safe balance for roots and infrastructure to coexist in the same landscape.
