Girdling Roots Magnolia
Attached is an interesting group of pictures that show a recent Magnolia that we uncovered. It is one of the more dramatic examples of severe girdling roots. I was showing the tree to Sandy Rose and he actually took the pictures. Thanks Sandy! At our office we are referring to this tree as the “poster child” for problem root flares. The work on the tree was done about a month or so ago. We will continue to monitor how it responds. I predict that we will be surprised at how quickly the depressed sections will fill in or rebound. This tree is sighing with relief and is saying “thank you”.
