How Does it Benefit Stay Green’s Customers?

Second, it protects landscaping. It allows workers to uncover and lift a tree’s complete root system. Traditional excavating methods can destroy up to 30 percent of a tree’s roots.
So, the Air-Spade boosts the survivability rate during with anything involving tree roots, especially transplanting.
