Category: Urban Trees & Root Control
There are many situations where tree roots can be allowed to spread freely in certain directions, but must be restricted from preceding into an adjacent property, or under pavement, or towards the foundations of a building, or underground services. In these circumstances a continuous durable physical barrier of sufficient depth is often the answer. Rootstop Root Control Barrier is robust, and its rigidity makes it easy to lay in a narrow trench which can be dug by a trenching machine or narrow backhoe bucket. Rootstop is constructed from a special plastic formulation, which does not become brittle and break down in the ground, nor is affected by chemical leaching into the soil.
- Top edge must be above finished grade to prevent root migration above barrier.
- Distance to be determined by a qualified arborist upon site inspection and consideration of species involved.
- Trench to be cut and roots to be pruned using industry accepted pruning methods. Trench to be backfilled using a maximum 12mm smooth aggregate.
- Depth to be determined by a qualified arborist upon site inspections and consideration of species involved.
