|Out of the 8 trees on my property I've worked on excavating the crown roots of 4 of them. Here are pics of where I am with them:
The largest tree I've worked on. I've cut off many of the girdled roots. I'm wondering if I should cut that one large one running across. Unfortunately there are two sprinkler lines running across the roots on one side. Who ever planted this and/or put in the sprinkler system was not very smart.
Is this deep enough? This is already about 5 inches below the surface of the grass.
I don't even know. Is this the crown? Any advice on what to cut away?
I have no idea if this is the crown.
If I have dug deep enough on these, what now? Cover it back up with mulch?
Thanks for any help!

|Howard Garrett out of Dallas/Ft. Worth area was the first person I heard talking about exposing root flares several years ago. You may want to check out his website to see if there are some tips and techniques.
