Oftentimes trees struggle to survive in urban or suburban environments because they are surrounded by compacted soils. Compacted soils prevent tree roots from being able to physically grow and inhibit the tree from adequately absorbing nutrients.
Using a specialized tool called an air spade, an arborist can excavate around the tree, loosening the soil while simultaneously preserving the tree’s roots. This process is often paired with composting and is an excellent option if you have a tree in a location with compacted soil, such as next to a driveway or path.
