Root Aeration

With rivers up in south Louisiana and the water table maxed out, water is not draining off like it should. It's amazing how much ground water in Baton Rouge seeps into aquifers. Only surface water that initially runs off goes into the drains/creeks/bayous and eventually to Amite River. A large percentage of what doesn't evaporate or immediately drain off simply seeps into the aquifers which are EVERYWHERE. In our area, we don't get much evaporation this time of year.

90% of the problems with trees, especially mature live oaks start in the root system. 75% of THOSE problems stem from compacted root systems. How often do you see hardpan* under live oaks? Obviously, not healthy for roots. 

SOIL COMPACTION KILLS TREES!

With tools called Air-spades, Louisiana Tree Service uses compressed air at high pressures to move soil around without affecting any the sensitive root system. 

We mix the soil with nutrient rich organic mulch that allows oxygen and water much easier access to the root systems. 

Louisiana live oaks and other native trees begin to thrive when allowed to grow through the "looser"soil."

Thanks for being a fellow tree -lover, and all the best in 2016!

*In soil science, agriculture and gardening, hardpan or ouklip is a general term for a dense layer of soil, usually found below the uppermost topsoil layer. There are different types of hardpan, all sharing the general characteristic of being a distinct soil layer that is largely impervious to water.
