At Tasmanian Tree Care, we understand the importance of proper tree care for the health and longevity of your trees. One of the ways we ensure the best care for your trees is through our use of an Air-Spade. This powerful tool allows us to provide a variety of services, including root collar excavation, de-compaction, soil aeration and tree transplant preparation.

Root Collar Excavation

The Air-Spade is a powerful tool that allows us to safely and effectively excavate the root collar area of a tree. This is the area where the trunk meets the roots, and it is critical for the health and stability of the tree. By excavating this area, we can remove soil and mulch that has built up over time, which can suffocate the roots and cause problems such as rot, disease, and pests. By removing this excess soil, we can improve the tree’s ability to absorb water and nutrients, and increase its resistance to environmental stress.

Soil Aeration

In addition to de-compacting soil, the aAir-Spade can also be used to aerate the soil. Soil aeration is the process of creating small holes in the soil to improve its structure and porosity. This allows water and air to penetrate deeper into the soil, which can improve the tree’s access to these critical resources. Aeration can also help to break up thatch, a layer of dead plant material that can accumulate on top of the soil and restrict the tree’s growth.


The Air-Spade can also be used to de-compact soil, which is the process of breaking up compacted soil to improve its structure and porosity. Compacted soil can be a major problem for tree roots, as it restricts their growth and access to water and nutrients. By using the air spade to de-compact the soil, we can create a more favourable environment for the tree’s roots to grow and thrive.

Tree Transplant Preparation

The Air-Spade can also be used to prepare trees for transplanting. This is a delicate process that requires great care and expertise to ensure the tree’s survival. The air spade allows us to safely and non-destructively dig around the tree’s roots, exposing them and making them more accessible for transplanting. This is a less invasive technique of excavation compared to traditional methods and it allows us to preserve more of the tree’s roots, giving the tree a better chance of survival.

Tasmanian Tree Care is proud to offer our clients a range of services that are designed to improve the health and vitality of their trees. Using an air spade, we can safely and effectively perform root collar excavation, de-compaction, soil aeration, and tree transplant preparation.
