Your Tree’s Root Flare

There are many parts of a tree that it’s important to pay attention to, especially when something seems to be wrong with your tree. While disease or insects can sometimes be to blame, your tree may have underlying issues during other times. A tree’s root flare, also called trunk flare and root collar, is an essential part of a tree. Keeping the root flare healthy goes a long way in keeping the entire tree healthy.

But where does the root flare of a tree lay? Often, people think the root flare is a part of the roots — but it’s not. Root flares are a part of the trunk and are the part of the tree where the base widens and meets the roots. Because so many people think that root flares are roots, some often cover the root flare when transplanting trees with soil. However, root flares shouldn’t be covered with soil or mulch, and they definitely shouldn’t in any way be underground, as this can cause major issues down the road with your tree. If this has happened to your trees, it’s important to get this corrected. Do you want to learn more about our root flare correction services in Dallas, TX?
