Professional Tree Service in Arlington, Virginia – One of Many Examples of Doing the Right Thing

Not too long ago, we performed a tree service job at an HOA in Arlington, VA. When our tree expert went to inspect the cherry trees on the property, he noticed they were suffering from years of mulch volcanoes. Mulch volcanoes occur when mulch is piled up at the base of a tree. Because of this issue, trees often develop a variety of issues.

Because we caught the problem early, the trees had not yet started to show symptoms from the mulch volcanoes. But if the problem was not dealt with, the trees could’ve begun to show signs of stress. In this case, they could have shown insect and disease issues, bark discoloration, choked roots, root rot, and/or rodent issues.

To see what we were dealing with and fix the problem, our Certified Arborists had to perform a root collar excavation and root pruning.

  1. First, we performed a Root Collar Excavation using pressurized air to expose the roots for inspection. This process exposed the roots without hurting the tree.
  2. Once the root system was visible, it became obvious that the excess mulch had caused roots to grow from the main trunk and around dominate roots. We also noticed discoloration on the trunk from mulch irritation and excess moisture.
  3. To fix the problem and keep health issues from occurring, we hand pruned the roots. By removing the problematic roots we returned the root structure to a healthy state. This allowed the root system to grow properly and thrive in the future.
  4. Lastly, we re-mulched the tree. You can see by the dirt lines on the trunk how high the mulch used to be. Notice that our proper mulching is much lower and does not pile up against the trunk of the tree.
