Roots are the lifeline of any tree or shrub. Most of a tree’s roots grow in the top 12″ of soil, with the fine roots in the top 3-5″ of soil. Careful monitoring can prevent several problems.

How root problems develop

• Too much or too little moisture

• Poor soil drainage

• pH too high or low

• Planting improperly – too high or too low

• De-icing salts

• Herbicide damage – weed control

• Construction on root damage

• Adding soil to roots

• Compaction (vehicles or pedestrians)

 
Warning signs of root problems

• Fungal growths on roots or trunk

• Yellow, dwarf or light green foliage
