Very often, trees and shrubs are planted too deep or in poor soil. Sometimes the soil could use some amendments or replenishment or the plant could use a boost.
Our root invigoration treatment can provide this!
The goal of this treatment is to promote tree health by improving poor soil and promoting a healthier soil environment.
This process can be used to promote more growth in younger trees, improve the health of older declining trees or help the recovery of trees that have been damaged by construction or other problems such as poor planting, insect damage or disease. The treatment creates a more natural and beneficial soil environment which encourages the development of the roots and aides in their ability to uptake water and nutrients. This can improve the health and growth of the plant.
An air tool and high-pressure air are used to loosen and cultivate the soil around the root area of the plant. This relieves compaction and excavates the root collar of the plant (which may be buried in soil or mulch) while minimizing disturbance to the root system. This also enables us to assess the health of the roots and check for any damaged or girdling root issues that may need to be corrected.
Organic matter and any required soil amendments and nutrients are then applied to the root area and incorporated using the air tool. This creates a root zone that is uncompacted and replenished with plenty of organic matter and nutrients to improve root growth which aids the plants ability to uptake nutrients and water, resulting in improved health and vigor in the treated plant. It can also aid in resisting insect and disease, environmental problems such as drought and can result in larger crop yield in fruit trees.
Because this process targets the soil and improves the tree’s health from the roots up, it is one of the most beneficial long term things you can do for the health of your plants.
