Maintenance and Repair of Tree Roots in Winona, MN by Maier Tree and Lawn

With the hardiness of Northern Midwest trees, most people may not consider the health of the roots beneath the trees in their yard. But those roots are quite important. Are there dying limbs or discolored leaves on your favorite tree? Maybe you've noticed the tree hasn't been growing at the same rate as in the past few years. Is it because of last year’s drought? Will the tree recover this season, or maybe next year? If something isn't looking quite right, don't wait. Maier Tree & Lawn can assess the overall health of your tree. Close to your home here in Winona, MN, we will gladly come and give you options to improve the supporting root system of your tree as well as enhancing the tree’s visual appeal.

At Maier Tree & Lawn we understand that tree health is highly dependent on root health. Growing in an outward radius from the trunk by more than 1.5 times a trees height, the root system supporting your tree is extremely complex. Roots absorb most of the water and nutrients your tree uses to maintain its strength, growth, and beauty. With the threat of pests, construction, a variety of diseases, and poor soil chemistry, keeping your tree on the path toward a century long life can be quite complicated. Taking decades to become mature and full in size and shape, no wonder people quickly see why maintaining their current full-grown tree is the better choice. Keeping trees and their root systems healthy is of utmost concern to us. It's very important to keep in mind that root health should not be ignored as it correlates directly to lifespan and beauty.

From fertilizer and soil nutrients to water drainage and pests, Maier Tree & Lawn of Rochester and Winona, MN is ready to help get your tree on track to good health. We are ready to work to improve any soil nutrient imbalance your tree roots may encounter. Give us a call or send us an email today to schedule a consultation. We'll be happy to come and discuss how Maier Tree and Lawn can help you save that beautiful tree, shrub, or bush you really can't afford to lose.
