Soil compaction can have a dramatically negative effect on the health of your trees. It is best to mitigate soil compaction before too much damage has occurred. There are a few ways in which we help amend the issue including the least invasive method of vertical mulching; this is the process of drilling 2 inch holes in the compacted soil and filling it with organic matter and mulch. Air excavation can also be done to till organic matter around the roots. This has to be done with great precision and care since it can damage the root system if high pressure is used. Trenches can be dug around the trunk of an affected tree and filled with a mixture of soil and fertilizer. Once the soil compaction is remedied, you can place fencing around the trees to prevent future compaction and damage.
