As a property owner, you’re aware of when your trees look visibly unhealthy – but you might not know how to revive them. As the leading arborist in Toronto, The Real Tree Masters professional help can renew your trees and bring them back to a healthy state.
Using root pruning and air spading, we can determine the health of a tree by examining the roots at the base of the trunk. If the roots are flaring, that is a clear indication that the tree is thriving. When they’re not flaring and are unhealthy, we will do everything we can to revitalize your tree, including safely changing its location.
Our professional arborists will also utilize air spading to evaluate a tree’s health through its roots and assist failing roots from flaring due to excess soil. These two techniques assist Real Tree Masters’ arborists in encouraging tree growth and will move it securely to safeguard its health.
Trees need arborists’ for healthy maintenance, so they can thrive and continue to grow. Learn how we can encourage healthy growth and protect property. Professionals know where and when to cut!
Our arborists undertake a time-consuming project regarding root pruning and air spading. Air spading digging tools, such as air compressors, will quickly break up the soil and expose the roots. Unlike tree pruning, root pruning involves severing roots with a shovel, a trenching machine, or a tree spade. On personal or commercial properties, various functions are served with root pruning and air spading. But, they are often meant to transport a tree elsewhere and to determine if roots are flared or not. Typically, when our arborists undertake projects involving root pruning and air spading in Toronto, the cost is between $80-$600, depending on the scale of the particular job.
Tree pruning involves stripping branches off a tree to encourage healthy growth. In contrast, root pruning consists of removing roots below the tree’s stump to either hinder growth and regenerate more hearts or safely remove a tree from a particular location.
While an air spading tool is a great way to move stubborn compressed soil, it is often a decision made by trained arborists if this tool is necessary to decompress the soil.
Both air spading and root pruning can be incredibly useful and even deemed necessary when it comes time to transport a tree without damaging it. Further, air spading and root pruning will help arborists determine the health of a tree and what measures need to be taken to improve its condition.
