How can I avoid damaging my trees?

Tree Root Protection

One of the most vulnerable parts of a tree is its roots. When you have to work the soil around your trees, lightly loosen the soil to avoid breaking the roots which are near the surface.

Avoid parking cars and other heavy equipment on your lawn and under your trees. This adds stress to tree roots and increases soil compaction.
