Root Management

Root Management and Tree Root Systems

Active root management is now an incontestable component of best practice in urban tree planting; it is no longer sufficient to plant a tree in an urban location and hope that the roots will keep out of trouble.

Citygreen has developed a range of specialist products. Different situations often require a different approach and rather than take a ‘one size fits all’ attitude we have designed our products range to give the tree as much growing advantage as possible.

For example, if one simply wants to protect paved surfaces from root heave, it is unnecessarily restrictive on the tree to install a vertical sheet barrier 1.5m deep all round. The RootDirector product diverts roots downwards to a level where they can safely establish without surface damage. The ReRoot linear ribbed barrier guides tree roots the same way as the RootDirector, though being linear this is not restricted to a particular size or shape. So, whether designing a root free corridor for service utilities, protecting building foundations or designing trees into a pedestrianised area, Citygreen has a cost effective root management solution.

“Our experience, in working with a Citygreen Design Studio was second to none. We found responses from the design studio to be very timely, and technically thorough. We went backwards and forwards a number of times, looking at different iterations of the design and, nothing was too much trouble to examine and explore different possibilities. I would highly recommend the Citygreen Design Studio to any future client considering using your services.”
