Reducing shallow root growth
Give trees Space
Reducing shallow root growth begins under the ground
Trees are essential to the quality of life in an urban environment, but they can also cause inconveniences and dangerous conditions when the roots don’t grow deep enough. They can even push up the pavement around them. Traditional treatments generally consist of repeated removal of problem roots. We can ensure that roots are able to grow deeper, or better yet, when planting new trees we can avoid problems with roots before they arise!
Deeper root growth prevents nuisances
TFI is a revolutionary method using special pressure equipment in the soil under your trees to provide new interconnected root canals far below the surface. These new canals are then filled with organic material, and supplemented with nutrients and special organic material to stimulate deeper root growth. The result: deeper roots, optimal stability and a significant reduction in pavement upheaval. Improving the root growth potential can also greatly improve the overall condition of the tree. The quality of your green environment increases considerably!
The advantages of reducing shallow root growth:
• optimal tree health and stability
• no excavation required
• no damage to roots, cables or pipes
• pavement or concrete remains undisturbed
• can be used year-round
Can be used anywhere, even on a large scale
TFI is universally applicable in any location. With hose lengths of more than 200 meters, we can access even the most seemingly impossible places. Thanks to recent developments, TFI is also an effective option for large areas or tree stands.

How the TFI method® works
TFI stands for Tree Fertilizer Injector. By creating new pores through soil layers and filling them with our specially developed substrate, we encourage the development of a natural soil structure and a healthy soil.
We carefully insert a lance into the soil.
We create a network of interconnected cracks in the soil.
We fill the cracks with a natural soil substrate.
The result: optimal root growth and rainwater infiltration.
The TFI method® can be used anywhere, from outdoor areas or parks to the heart of the city. Also for larger trees stands!
