Cleveland Tree Company | Protecting your tree’s roots

cleveland tree company deep root treatment

Looking for a Cleveland Tree Company? We all know that a tree’s roots are an important part of keeping a tree alive. Tree roots stabilize a tree and are the mechanisms that help the tree get its nutrients and moisture. Some trees have roots that show above ground while others keep all their roots underground. As a Cleveland resident, keep this advice in mind to avoid harming your tree’s roots when planting.

Depending on the type of tree you are looking to plant, you have to pay attention to how big and tall the tree is expected to grow. This will indicate how close you can plant the tree to your home, driveway, electric lines, sewage pipes, and other structures on, or around your property. Our tree experts at VanCuren using the rule of thumb that the bigger and taller your tree is expected to grow, the farther away it should be planted from the aforementioned list. Large and medium trees should be planted at least 10 feet from structure, while small trees should be planted at least two feet away from structures.

If you do not plant the tree deep enough in the ground, that is when you will start to see the roots creep up to the surface and cause issues. Most tree’s roots only lie two feet into the ground. Consult or call a professional arborist to make sure that you have taken into account factors like drip line and tree root flare for the optimal depth of tree planting.

For these reasons it is best that you pick a preferred location to plant your tree first rather than choosing the kind of tree you want.

Overall, the best way to make sure you are protecting your tree’s roots is to find a local tree servicing company. This way, they will already know all about the local conditions and preferred tree species for this climate.
