In the spring 2021 we strengthened the reduced vitality of 170-year-old horse chestnut trees - the vegetation dominants of Žižkov Square in Tábor.
First, the stabilization of the secondary crowns and the installation of the tree cablings took place.
Then we revitalised the root space by removing of impermeable paving, aerating the compacted root space, adding active humus, hydrogel and, mycorrhizal fungi (air injection). The urine-contaminated substrate was blown off by air spade and replaced with a structural substrate.
The new permeable surface based on lava tree substrate in the root zone was used and the water-retaining swale in the paving was installed.
