Air Excavation Reveals
When trees are planted incorrectly or have had excessive mulching or soil added around them, it causes potentially fatal problems. In the pictures below, you can see examples of trees that have suffered from incorrect arboricultural practices. Using our Air Knife, we have the ability to diagnose these types of problems and, if called in time, mitigate them. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please call today.
