AIR SPADING

and Root Pruning

When a tree is starting to decline or surrounded by construction, air spading and/or root pruning may be deemed necessary. Contact a STS consultant to look into your trees specific needs and determine what may be the best call to help your struggling tree.

Air spading uses a high-pressure air gun to remove the top several inches of root soil with out disturbing the roots. We then replace that soil with a 50/50 mix of loam soil and organic matter.
