This is the time of year for renovations and other construction projects. Before you begin, consider consulting with one of our Certified Arborists to evaluate the impact this work may have on your trees and shrubs.
One of the most prevalent dangers is severing a tree’s root system, but soil compaction is another large problem that many people don't consider. When heavy equipment drives over plant root zones, soil becomes compressed. When water can't penetrate the dense, compacted soil you end up with excessive dryness and roots suffocate. Compacted soil also causes twig and branch die back, leaf or needle dryness and possibly even tree death.
Learn the steps necessary to prevent plant injury by including an Arborist’s visit in your project’s planning process. For a free consultation with a Certified Arborist, before your next project, give us a call at (877)308-8733, or click below.
