Help with caring for an Arbutus Tree

Hello there, we just bought a property in nanaimo that has an Arbutus tree on it. The tree is about a foot in diameter. I notice that someone has covered the roots with stones/rocks, on top of the soil. I would like to remove these and expose some of the lovely colour of the roots. Will this damage the tree? Thank you for your help.


Hi Ron here...

Can't imagine that moving rocks would hurt such a well established tree.

I wouldn't want to remove much soil though from the roots.
