To avoid possible damage to your valuable trees, call us during the design phase of your construction project. We can do a preconstruction evaluation to advise you on how the placement of a walkway, patio or building addition will impact your trees, and provide possible alternatives where appropriate. Often we will recommend deep root fertilization a year prior to construction to promote maximum health and offset potential construction damage.
Before you fill or cut around a tree consider the damage you may be doing to the root system. Trees near construction projects are vulnerable to root abbreviation, damage and soil compaction that can result in plant death. A good rule of thumb to avoid problems is to prohibit machinery and excavation underneath the crown of the tree.
