Hi, I am writing a project to inspect root systems of trees to prove photographically that they are shallow (generally) in India. Could someone with experience give me an idea of how long it would take to dig with an airspade to say a meter by a quarter of a tree's root system? The idea is to dig within only a quarter of a mature tree's root system so as not to strain it. The trees would be 10- 15 meters tall, canopies similar to sycamores of that height. Any ideas, research or experience related to this also welcome! Thanks! Cheers, Island
