Why aerate soil around trees with an air spade?

In our heavy clay soils here in North Texas, soil compaction is a big problem for our landscape plantings and trees. Soil can build up around the base of your trees, covering the root flares. This can lead to problems with decay around the base of your tree. Trees with buried root flares are also more susceptible to pests and diseases due to overall stress. Soil around the base of the tree tends to hide girdling roots that are very damaging to your trees and can often lead to their death.

Live Oak Leaf Drop

While there are a number of problems that can cause leaf drop in Live Oaks, this time of year you’re most likely seeing a normal senescing, or dying off, of last year’s foliage. As temperatures begin to rise in late January through February, your Live Oaks can begin to look sickly or stressed. Leaves begin to yellow and may have brown or black blotches. They will often discolor very quickly and begin to drop en masse.
