Vertical Mulching

A vertical mulching tree service is the process of making many holes in the soil of the root zone of a particular tree with the purpose of creating many entryways for air, moisture, and nutrients to reach the roots of a given tree.

Vertical mulching services are typically performed using an air spade, and the overall process can greatly improve the overall health and vigour of any tree. Holes are backfilled with different organic materials to help improve soil aeration and to reduce compaction.

This can be very beneficial to trees with construction damage, very compacted soils, and where trees have been backfilled with too much soil.
