Caring for tree roots

Good soil promotes healthy tree and root growth, and in turn, good root systems help to stabilize the water table and prevent soil erosion.

Consider the conditions and space that your trees and shrubs have for root growth. If a tree has insufficient room for root growth, as when soil is overly-compacted, the tree will be stunted. For this reason, tilling soil, aerating and composting will improve root movement and growth.

The experts at Arborwood can assess and monitor the root growth of your trees and shrubs as part of the diagnosis process (or as a component of our holistic approach to tree care).

Your crew was most professional and pleasant. Now that I am retired, I am able to watch how various trades do their work, and yours are the best I have seen. They not only did the job well, but were neat, tidy and non-profane in the process. Everyone who watched your crew work commented that "you couldn't even tell that they were here because they left no mess behind". As you can see, we are very pleased with the result.
