Their abilities to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen and also to filter air pollution make trees important to both the survival of the human species and the planet. However, they need to be well maintained to remain healthy and capable of performing their natural functions.
The key to a healthy tree is a healthy root system. Rootcontrollers Australia provides a range of essential tree root control services that not only preserve the tree’s integrity, but also prevent its roots from causing unnecessary damage to roads, building foundations and other structures.
In addition to the installation of tree root control barriers, we can also assist with the following:
Tree Root Pruning
There are numerous reasons why tree roots need to be pruned, but three of the most common are:
- To prevent damage caused by roots to essential services located beneath the ground (gas, telecommunications, etc.)
- To transplant trees from one location to another
- To remove dead roots that hinder the viability of the tree
- Selective root pruning
Using our hydro-excavation technology, we’re able to provide selective tree root pruning services that protect not only the tree but also its surrounds above and below ground. It’s a non-destructive method of tree root pruning that doesn’t interfere with underground services. It also allows you to work deeper beneath the surface, unlike traditional digging methods, as it can identify roots up to two metres underground.
Tree Root Investigation / Identification
A tree with dying or diseased roots can be dangerous, especially if it’s located near your house, car, or anywhere that’s a busy thoroughfare. The best way to investigate the health and viability of your tree and confirm that it’s not likely to be a hazard is to call Rootcontrollers Australia. We will expose the roots using hydro-excavation technology, identify the diseased roots (if there are any) and take the appropriate course of action, whether it’s installing a root control barrier or removing the tree altogether.
