How to tell if your tree is planted too deep.

How to tell if your tree is planted too deep.

Many of the problems facing our trees, shrubs, and other varieties of plants can be attributed to how they are grown from seeds or propagation, as well as how they are planted. The primary cause of tree decline is due to being planted too deep and this can occur on your property or when the tree is grown in a nursery. When a tree is planted too deep it faces an array of challenges which start with an inhibited accessibility to oxygen. Roots require oxygen in order to complete photosynthesis, it is essential for survival. You can tell that your tree has been planted too deep if there is no indication of root flare as it enters the soil. The trunk should begin to flare out as it reaches the ground, extending it's roots just inches below the top soil. (RCX) or root collar excavation frees the roots from the impacted soil, exposing the root collar, and enabling feeder roots to access essential water and oxygen.
