What’s Involved in Root Pruning?
Our Auckland arborists are skilled in the process of root pruning, which involves severing a tree’s roots. There are many reasons people might require this service, such as successfully moving or transplanting a tree or maintaining its dwarf size.
Tree root pruning is also an ideal way to encourage a fruit tree to flower or if a potted plant has outgrown its container, and you don’t want to move it to a larger one.
Root Barriers for Trees
Our expert tree landscaping team can assist with advice and installation of root barriers. When trees are planted in urban environments, a root barrier can stop the roots from growing into structures and causing damage.
However, a landscape tree service provider may be required to install these successfully. Too close, and the tree’s stability can be compromised. Our team is skilled in estimating a minimum safe distance for a tree barrier in Auckland.

Most of the trees growing in the garden around your house or business will not cause damage. Occasionally building foundations can be affected, but more likely you will find tree roots cause blocked drains and lifted pavements. If you are concerned book in a consultation with one of our team.
Removing large tree roots can make the tree unstable or unhealthy as the tree will not be able to get the required water and nutrients it needs. Its best to get an expert involved when working around tree roots – in particular when dealing with protected species or larger, mature trees.
When planting trees choose smaller trees or those with shallow root systems and don’t plant them too deep. You can you mulch or top-dress around or on top of existing surface roots – most importantly do not cut surface roots as you can affect the long-term viability of your trees.
