Air Spading is a specialist technique used for Tree Root Investigation and Soil De-Compaction. An Air Spade tool omits compressed air pressure to expose the trees roots in a manner that’s less harmful than conventional spading methods.
When soil has been heavily compacted by either storage of heavy materials, vehicle use or possibly heavy pedestrian use it reduces the ability of water to move through the soil. This restricts oxygen, water and causes poor root systems.
Tree Root Investigation
If you’re concerned about the health of a tree, the answer may lie in the roots. One of Air spading primary purposes is root investigation.
When exposing the tree’s roots, we can investigate any damage or decay that poses a threat towards the tree. Fungal decay can attack roots and therefore can affect the trees stability.
