If I raise the level of soil at the base of a tree will the tree suffer?
We are leveling our garden which means raising the soil by about 1m on one side and lowering the other. At the end of the garden we have a beautiful Prunus Niger which I would hate to loose but we do wish to raise the soil level by 1m in this area. Is there something that I should be doing to ensure that we don't loose it? Our soil is very sandy and tree gets plenty of light. Lindsay, Farnham
