The worst thing you can do is cover a tree's roots with ANYTHING! Soil, rocks, stones, more than 1 inch of mulch... yeah... anything. It would be like putting a pillow over your face. You would suffocate. So do they. Tree roots NEED AIR!
Everybody loves those big old trees. They are so majestic and wise. But, like human counterparts, they can get stressed or sick. Dr. Jim Conroy's advanced bioenergy and consciousness methods help these trees regain inner functionality.
Trees can show signs of "bleeding canker" when they are stresses or sick. Organisms that usually live in the soil find their way up onto the bark to live a different stage of their lives. However they can live full-time in the soil and NOT harm the tree.
You can measure a big tree by simply standing around it and holding out your arms. We call it "Ring Around Tree" and it's a lot of fun! Get someone to take a photo of your family around a big tree...just like this!
