It’s impossible to see roots underground, so when it’s necessary to inspect roots the soil needs to be removed. Using high pressured air, we remove soil around the tree without damaging the tree’s roots. This allows us to spot current and future root problems.
Once we can see the tree’s roots and have identified potential problems, root pruning is sometimes required. Root pruning can protect tree roots from damage during construction or protect structures from root growth.
Root inspections and root pruning are often requirements for tree permits in the City of Toronto. If you have questions about your tree’s roots or would like a quote Contact Us for more information.
