What Are Girdling Roots?
A Stem Girdling Root isn’t something that’s seen every single day. It occurs when one of the roots completely or partially wraps itself around the base of a tree. In doing so, it cuts off the tree’s supply of water and nutrients from the soil plus branches.
Don’t be worried, we have the experience to provide removal of Stem Girdling Roots. It’s a delicate process but our experience affords us the ability to do so. We can remove them until their total cross sectional area is at 25% of the trunk’s total cross sectional area at 4.5 feet from the ground. Those numbers reference larger examples of trees that are afflicted with Girdling roots.
