In Paradise | For health flash

In recent years, patriots have focused on the roots of trees by identifying a number of common ailments that can lead to declining health or death.

The root of the tree can be described as the area around the trunk that passes from the trunk to the root tissue. It is usually associated with the base flame or the explosion of the trunk, which is a large part of the trunk that enters the ground.

Healthy tree trunks usually have a well-defined tree trunk. However, many city trees do not have a distinct trunk on the ground. In some cases, the examination of the other part of the tree shows no signs of light, and on one side of the trunk there may appear a spark.

If you look around or around your local park, you will often find trees that look like no trees. He was an experienced veteran who called the trees “telephone poles” because they had little or no explosives on the ground.

In these cases, the root of the neck is buried for one reason or another. Often, the tree is planted too deeply to begin with. In other cases, the stem may have been burned after the stump was removed. This usually occurs at soil level related to construction projects but is sometimes the result of landscaping around the base of the tree.

Irrespective of the cause, a buried root can affect the health of the tree, since the ground and the stem are connected to the trunk. Over time, trunks can restrict growth and choke the tree. This is usually a slow process, but I have seen it happen in young trees planted in poor soil.

Even in the case of truncation, the soil retains a large amount of moisture near the bark, and most tree trunks do not develop consistent moisture resistance. The result could be a higher mortality rate from common root diseases such as armatureria and phytotoxicity, or simply increase the decay and decay in stem wounds near the surface.

The presence of soil in the trunk can also lead to root growth that connects the buried trunk tissue. Although roots can grow together, root and stem tissue cannot. The result is an “armed root” that restricts the growth of the trunk and eventually chokes the tree.

In some cases I have found armed roots that are completely heavy on the trunk, causing the tree to gradually collapse and die prematurely. However, most armed roots restrict growth only on the stem. In these cases, the flame of the suitcase may be small or completely absent.

Certain species, such as the Acer rubrum, the Norwegian maple (Acer platanoides), the white pine (Pinus Strobos), the blue spruce (Pseudo unngens), and others, are more prone to root growth. And over time, it is important to keep track of the miles you have and if and when they expire.

Archaeologists are digging undergrowth in young and old trees showing the symptoms described above. Often, a simple excavation around the trunk can put a lot of stress on the plants again, leading to better health in the future. At other times, seedling drilling is used to accurately identify the issue, and it may not really help if the roots are too large to be cut or if the tree’s health is severely affected by past stress.
