Air Spade is a specialised service for removing soil from around tree roots without damaging them.

Air Spade works by firing a stream of air at 1500mph, which displaces soil without damage to roots or services.

Loose soil can be removed using a soil vacuum.

Exposed roots are protected to prevent drying out or frost damage.

An Air Spade is the best way of removing decompaction from the root plates of trees.

Applications

  • Mapping of tree roots and obtaining samples
  • Installation of service trenches through tree Root Protection Areas (RPA's)
  • Repair of services without damaging tree roots
  • Removal of built up or contaminated soil from root plates
  • Allows root pruning without damage to retained roots
  • Decompaction, using radial trenching or across an entire area

Operational area

Ruskins offers Air Spade root investigation services on a nationwide basis.
