Is this a girdling root?
Hello dear friends,
This is a 5 years old ginkgo biloba tree that was buried in a pot and I planted 16 months ago but now trying to figure out the flare, is this big root I’m pointing at a girdling root? should I remove it? I’m not sure the tree will survive cutting such a big root! is this tree doomed then? what about the other crossing root on the right? should I cut that? and there’s this big root in the middle that comes from above the flare? should this one be cut too? Maybe I should take the tree out and plant it again or go buy another one that might be the same? It is dormant now, never had such a problematic tree! maybe it’s the norm with ginkgos I don’t know!
Any advice is appreciated, thanks so much!
