Michael Galvin is local, and was recommended earlier, but im not sure I am exactly important enough for his time.I would go to the ISA and ASCA websites and search for BCMAs or RCAs in your area as well as asking around for the best tree care companies in your state. This tree needs some very specific work done to it with proper follow up care.
Yep, Mr. Galvin was definitely the highlight there. Just a matter of warranting his level of expertise, as this isnt a champion tree of any sort. Ill try to reach out again to the SavATree group and see if i have better luck.Mrtree posted a few names earlier you should look into.
Thank you Guy, I may take you up on that. Mt Rainer is about 40 minutes west of me.When was that house built?
The first thing to do is to get clear on the root LOSS, not 'damage'. Pics show a huge amount of root loss.
Good move leaving the company that pushes N fert; unconscionable.
Mycorrhizal material may well be good to apply; unlike N, no harm in trying that.
Drainage patterns key to look at and mitigate via deep aeration where possible.
I'll be in Mt. Rainier near DC next month; check website if you'd like an estimate.
