Root pruning is the process of cutting roots prior to mechanical excavation near a tree. Root pruning may be necessary to minimize damage to the tree’s root system during construction or in preparation for large tree transplanting. Improper root pruning and root damage from excavation can cause great harm to a tree which may affect tree health and/or structural stability. A tree risk assessment should be performed prior to cutting any roots and alternative techniques, such as boring under the roots, should be considered. Tree health and soil moisture should be monitored frequently following root pruning.View More
