Most trees have unfortunately been either planted too deeply or had soil grades raised over their root systems. The natural root flare is not visible above the surface of the soil, which causes trunk decay, girdling (or choking) of the roots, and many other health problems as the trees mature. Our Root Flare Exposure crews utilize a unique tool called an Air Spade to expose any trunk decay and remove girdling roots to prolong the life of your trees.

If you cannot see the natural root flare of your trees above the surface of the soil, please contact Moore Tree Care to schedule a complimentary appointment with one of our ISA Certified Arborists.
