High Dirt Surround: In this informative video, ISA Certified Arborist Wes Rivers delves into the common practices of the landscape industry regarding tree planting and their potential drawbacks. The video sheds light on the adverse effects of high dirt surrounds, emphasizing how they can impact the overall health of trees. Through a detailed example featuring a juniper tree, we explore the consequences of planting too deep and using excessive soil, leading to restricted oxygen supply to the roots. Visible signs of distress, such as canopy thinning and branch die-off, are discussed as indicators of these issues. The video also offers a solution: a root collar correction that involves removing excess soil, adjusting mulch levels, and exposing the root flare. This comprehensive explanation serves as a guide to help viewers understand the importance of proper tree planting methods and their significant role in maintaining vibrant and healthy landscapes.
