Grade changes and soil compaction can deplete oxygen to tree roots. Aeration helps with gas exchange in soils to improve root growth and water uptake.
Vertical mulching is a method that involves drilling holes in a prescribed grid pattern under the tree canopy to aid in oxygen and water infiltration thus increasing the soil volume for deeper root growth. The holes can be filled with compost, peat moss or other materials such as pea gravel depending on soil characteristics.
Mechanical aeration works extremely well with deep root fertilization throughout the root zone providing the best of both methods.
