Root Flare Correction

When it comes to our trees, sometimes its hard to tell what is wrong with it. Our trees can start to decline and there are no obvious signs that anything is wrong. This really applies to our root flare, which is the bulging part of the tree where it widens at the base and meets up with the root system. Other names for root flare are root collars, root crowns, and trunk flares. While the name suggests that root flare is part of the root system, it is actually a part of the trunk. Because of this, it is important that the root flare remain uncovered with soil or mulch. If the root flare of your trees isn’t showing, call Fort Worth Arborist Co. at 817-975-0180! Our expert arborists are able to provide quality root flare correction in Fort Worth, TX.


Our Root Flare Management

There are two common problems that occur with root flare–one, when root flare is underground, the bark of the tree will have a harder time breathing and it will stay moist. Second, if the soil is too high around the trunk, it can cause the tree to choke and stunt its growth. Trees are sometimes planted way too deep or they have too much soil or mulch that covers the tree flare. Because the root flare is part of the trunk, it’s important that it isn’t covered or moist in order for it to grow correctly. To rectify this issue, our arborists are able to provide root flare correction in Fort Worth, TX.

This process involves removing soil and mulch from around the tree trunk and root flare. With our root flare correction service, we are able to remove extra soil and mulch that is causing issues for your root flare. Our arborists will use an air spade, which blasts air at a high speed to remove excess mulch and soil. While it uses a high speed to remove mulch and soil, it will not hurt your roots or the bark of your tree.

What Clients Say

Nancy Selleck

One of our neighbor's oak trees had oak wilt, so we called Fort Worth Arborist Co to have them check our trees for problems. They came out the next week and checked our trees and a number of our neighbors' trees as well. Then we received a detailed report via no charge! Excellent company...would highly recommend them any time.
