Construction practices are very damaging to tree health and the soil in which it grows. Healthy soils are porous and contain the necessary organic material and life-giving micro-organisms required for plants to survive. Nutrients, water, and oxygen are readily available, allowing plant roots to grow and thrive.
Compacted soils literally have the life-giving properties squeezed out of them. They contain low oxygen and water levels and few beneficial micro-organisms. Because roots have difficulty growing and surviving in compacted soil they can become stunted or may even die.
