Tree Roots Covered In Concrete
Often times you may we walking down the sidewalk in an urban area and see trees completely covered right to the base with concrete. This is an unfortunate sight to see because these trees are unable to eat and unlikely to survive.
A tree’s root system absorbs water and nutrients in the soil. If it can’t access those natural instances because it’s covered by concrete, then there will be problems.
We can’t advise calling an arborist enough when it comes to situations like these. If you are pouring concrete, please get a tree care company or arborist on the phone so they can help accommodate you and possibly save the trouble of having a tree being removed in the future.
