root flare cut with chain saw

Want to cause major problems for the citizens in the community? Do this to your trees. Look closely at the two enormous cuts through the root flare at the base of the trunk. This will initiate massive decay in the major roots and trunk base. Trees are likely to become unstable as a result of this type of treatment.
