The first step is to cut the sod and then remove it. We then run the trencher in the exposed area cutting through any roots. The trencher can cut through some pretty thick roots.
Notice the weak turf area. You can still see the aerification holes and a few of the cup cutter plugs we took from the nursery to patch the thinnest spots. When we pulled the plugs out they were mostly tree root mass and not soil or grass roots. The root pruning will allow the turf to recover and thrive without the competition of tree roots.
