Dogs digging under spruce trees

Asked August 21, 2016, 6:50 PM EDT

A neighbors dogs have dug up around a large old spruce tree on our property. Is there any expert opinion to back up my hunch that this is damaging the tree? If so, how severely? Would replacing the soil around it help when I get them to remove their dogs from this spot? Thank you

Yes, do just what you said. It is damaging. Most tree roots are shallow.
