Challenge

A tree root protection solution is required in urban areas where paving is to be laid near existing trees. Loading at the surface can lead to soil compaction, stress on the tree roots, and eventually the death of the tree.

Heavy fines can be imposed on developers not seen to be protecting the trees. Besides, trees add a draw factor to new developments and are seen as aesthetically pleasing.

Solution

Green Grid's root bridge can be installed to provide a support layer on which paving and tarmac can be applied. The 7.5 inches thick steel structure prevents soil compaction, thus protecting the tree.
