Grade changes are constant in urban environments.  Once the root collar is buried the trees can develop root rots or girdling roots that go undetected.  Tree diseases and failures can result.  We carefully excavate these root collars back to their proper grades, arresting diseases, and bringing trees back to health.  There is an open pit that remains around these excavations.
