Root Pruning in Southlake, Texas

One of the largest problems that trees grown in containers or buckets develop over time are curled roots. This situation often results in the declining health of the tree. Trees grown in containers or pots will naturally develop curled roots and these root systems may continue to curl even after the tree is planted, which prevents the tree from establishing a strong root structure. If you suspect your tree has curled roots, contact us today at (817) 697-2884.

As the tree grows and the trunk expands, the curled roots will begin girdling the trunk which prevents the flow of nutrients and water throughout the tree’s structure. Once girdled roots are evident, it is often difficult to save the tree. A tree that may have appeared healthy for years will begin exhibiting premature defoliation, dead branches, bark falling and will eventually die from these girdled roots. The root flare must be exposed, as dirt, ground cover and mulch that cover the root flare may lead to the rotting of the bark and make the tree susceptible to diseases and insect pests.

Regular root pruning and root flare exposure by a tree care specialist is important for all trees and is the surest way to prevent girdled roots from destroying your tree. Contact us today at (817) 697-2884 for a tree health assessment and to ensure that your tree will not develop girdled roots. Our tree care specialists are devoted to providing the best tree health care and will make certain your trees remain in robust health for many years to come.
