Damage to root systems can be devastating for trees and for your property. With weakened roots, trees can’t get enough water or nutrients, which can cause leaves and branches to die and fall on your home or property. A reduced root system will also impact the tree’s ability to withstand high winds, and can potentially lead to the felling of the entire tree. Fortunately, there are several ways that you and your tree care professionals can help mitigate root damage and prevent root-related tree problems.
