Root damage is one of the leading causes of tree death.
Soil compaction is very harmful to the root system of a tree because it reduces the amount of space in the soil that would normally be filled with oxygen and water. Vertical mulching may be recommended because it cuts through the soil providing a well aerated area around the roots. This aerated area then allows the penetration of water and oxygen into the soil thereby strengthening the roots of the tree. A power drill or an air spade is used to drill holes approximately 2 inches in diameter and 12 inches deep in a grid pattern beneath the canopy of the tree. The holes are then filled with a compost mixture. Vertical mulching reduces stress and strengthens the root system of the tree.
