Root Works

Rootworks, LLC is a subsidiary of Pitchford Associates, LLC offering a variety of services using our high-pressure air gun, or ‘Air Spade.’  This unique tool utilizes a concentrated stream of air and at significant pressure to blow earth away from tree roots without harming them. 

We use this tool as a way to uncover roots for examination or to install utility lines without harming the roots.  We also use it for adding soil amendments, undertaking root collar exams of mature trees, and also radial trenching and root pruning.  This is an excellent tool for helping the homeowner, builder or landscape architect looking to improve the health of a specimen tree or to install new utility lines while avoiding important tree roots.
