Green industry professionals have become concerned with an apparent increase in landscape trees with abnormally deep structural roots (deep structural roots). Structural roots form the basic foundation of a tree's root system on which much of the

soil line has become more commonplace. The prevailing practice had been to remove the entire tree and root system by “pushing” the tree completely out of the soil. What impact, if any, the removal method has on the performance of citrus resets has not

The root system anchors the plant and is the organ chiefly responsible for water and nutrient absorption and the synthesis of many endogenous hormones. The root system affects many processes such as the growth of new shoot branches and leaves

quality traits including total soluble solids (Brix) were recorded on 30 July, 3 Aug., 6 Aug., 11 Aug., 13 Aug., and 17 Aug. 2009. At the end of the harvest season on 26 Aug., roots of all plants were dug and evaluated for percent of root system galled and

stomatal traits may improve overall water use, but it can lead to yield reductions even under well-watered conditions ( Deikman et al., 2012 ). As the site of water uptake and plant-soil interface, root systems have been the focus of substantial drought
