Trustees of Gramercy Park:
Tree & Shrub Maintenance -Deep Root Invigoration
Bartlett Tree Experts were recently in Gramercy Park for our annual Park Tree Maintenance Program. Each year, they assess our trees for visual signs of diminished capacity for growth, discolored foliage and branch deterioration.
This spring, based on their analysis they have selected several trees for deep-root invigoration. This 4000-year-old system (it used to be known as "tilling the earth") now involves aerating the root system with special equipment and regenerating organic matter back into the soil. A supersonic air spade is used so as not to damage the feeder roots.
