Root Collar Excavation

Professional Arborist Service

Trees are large, majestic plants, and researchers consider them among the oldest, largest living things on the earth. But, if you don't understand how they work, even the smallest mismanagement can damage a tree permanently— or even kill it. One of the most important things to monitor is a tree’s root crown, an area that is relatively small but extremely important to overall tree health. That’s why when it comes to urban and suburban trees, working with an expert tree service is so important.

As beautiful and vital parts of any ecosystem, Monster Tree wants to develop as many healthy trees nationwide as we can. That’s why our services are simple, accessible, and affordable for nearly any homeowner in the U.S.

What Is a Root Crown?

The root crown is the part of the tree that transitions between the root system and the trunk. It’s also sometimes called the collar, and it is the single most vulnerable part of your tree. Many trees in the wild eventually die because their root crown becomes covered in leaves, dead branches, or other debris. Just a few inches of soil covering the root crown can introduce water mold fungi or choke the tree of the air and light it needs.

When the root crown is covered for an extended period, it can cause it to slowly die. As a result, it becomes unstable—making it vulnerable to deadwood, infestations, diseases, and collapse. Sometimes the collar is covered simply due to the soil level rising over time. The simplest way to take care of this problem is through excavation, which exposes the root crown in the way your tree needs.
