Root Management

The roots of the tree are the means by which the tree obtains water and nutrients. They also provide anchorage of the tree in the soil. Both of these functions are essential for a healthy, stable tree.

Tree roots are easily damaged by changes in soil level, trenching, soil compaction, drought and erosion. Tree roots can also be problematic, sometimes causing damage to footpaths, walls and underground services. If we wish to protect trees, and protect infrastructure, it is essential to start with the roots.
