Problems Caused by Trees Set Too Deep

Deep set trees: In this informative video, ISA Certified Arborist Wes Rivers delves into a common issue that affects newly planted trees—buried root flares. Join us as we explore the challenges posed by soil or mulch covering the crucial root flare area. As this impacts the tree’s overall health. The video vividly illustrates how these buried root flares can lead to discolored and moisture-laden trunk tissue, causing undue stress on the tree. This stress, in turn, hampers the transport of vital water, nutrients, and sugars throughout the tree.

The discussion includes a practical case study. It features a juniper tree planted too deep with an excessive layer of soil, which hampers oxygen availability to the roots. The repercussions are visible through the tree’s struggling branches and negative reactions. Discover the essential concept of root collar correction. This is a process that involves removing excess soil, adjusting mulch levels, and exposing the root flare to rejuvenate the tree’s vitality.
