A tree’s root system anchors the tree as well as absorbs and transports water and minerals from the soil to nourish it. The root system stores essential food during the winter months to prepare the tree for spring and the production of foliage. A great way to keep trees healthy is by deep root feeding. Nutrients, air, and water are pumped down to the roots through a hollow stake in the ground. Deep root feeding bypasses lawn grass, encourages downward growth, and reduces the amount of erosion and water runoff.

Quick Facts from Colorado State University

  • Most tree roots are located in the top 6 to 24 inches of the soil and occupy an area two to four times the diameter of the tree crown.
  • Roots obtain water, oxygen, and minerals from soil. They do not grow toward anything or in any particular direction.
  • Soil compaction, change in soil depth, and improper watering can injure roots, increasing stress and susceptibility to disease and insects.
  • To avoid root disease, maintain a healthy, vigorous environment around a tree. Once a root system is severely affected, the tree must usually be removed.

Deep Root Watering

Homeowners in the Denver area need to remember that Colorado has an arid climate and our winters are sometimes too dry to adequately keep yard trees healthy. Ross Tree offers a deep root watering service. We inject around the tree, which allows the roots of trees and shrubs to absorb moisture and nutrients.
