|発明の名称||METHOD FOR CUTTING ROOT OF FRUIT TREE AND ATTACHMENT|
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide an attachment for cutting the root of a fruit tree, cutting at a given range the underground roots of a mature fruit tree while leaving fine roots near the ground surface and vertically moving the fruit tree.
SOLUTION: The method for cutting the root of a fruit tree comprises inserting from the back and forth or the right and left of a fruit tree 7 the attachment 1 for cutting roots deeply into the ground while leaving thin roots 9 near the ground surface followed by cutting underground roots 8 at a given range, vertically moving the fruit tree 7 with the attachment 1 and pulling out the attachment 1. The attachment 1 is such a tool having a plurality of fork-like longitudinal blades 2 with curved sides similar to the bottom shape of a bucket and root-cutting blades 3 for cutting the roots 8 of the fruit tree installed at the ends between each of the longitudinal blades 2, deeply inserted from the back and forth or the right and left of the fruit tree 7 into the ground while leaving the fine roots 9 near the ground surface followed by cutting the underground roots 8 with the root-cutting blades 3, and raising the fruit tree 10-20 cm upward and bringing it down followed by being pulled out. Water content around the root 8 is temporarily restricted so as to improve the quality of fruits.
