Root Collar Excavation

Usually, the most notable signs of a tree’s health are above ground, yet the real problems are often occurring below ground. Root collar excavations reveal problems with the root flare area of the tree (the point where the trunk tapers out at the bottom). There may be issues with girdling roots, decay, and pests. Many of these root problems can be addressed and can help to improve plant vigor.
