Air Spade Root Exploration and Report

A root exploration and subsequent report is necessary for a tree that is, or will be, impacted by construction activity. This is often a mandatory requirement by municipalities for development permits and applications.

Our Root Explorations and Reports Include:

  • Air Spade Root Exploration

    Tree and Ravine employs the Air Spade System when performing root explorations to minimize negative impacts to trees. The Air Spade System is a highly specialized tool using pressurized air to daylight tree roots without damaging the roots, nearby utilities, or communication lines.

  • Root Exploration Report

    A detailed Root Exploration Report enables a more efficient review of development applications by the governing Urban Forestry Authority, in relation to Tree Injury permits. This results in fewer delays in application processing and expedites permit acquisition.

  • Site visit for pre-dig preparations and to designate excavation area

  • Site visit for root exploration, inspection, assessment, photographing of excavated roots and pruning, all performed by an ISA Certified Arborist

  • Digital copy of the Root Exploration Report as outlined above

  • Digital copy of Tree Injury Permit application(s) if necessary
