A proven approach to protecting tree health within construction zones
When construction or maintenance work intrudes into a tree’s root zone, the tree will benefit from exploratory excavation and root pruning.
It enables the Arborist to:
- Locate existing roots through Hydro-Vacing or Day-lighting and provide proper root pruning
- Protect and cover exposed roots with soil, mulch or burlap and provide additional water as required
- Recommend the best location for utility placement to benefit the tree, and assist in ongoing utility maintenance
- Properly prune the tree roots so that they grow away from the new construction

The benefits can include soil decompaction, root collar excavation, root pruning and transplanting and bare root digging.
Common remediation uses of AirSpade® include the following practices:
