The CORE Tree Root Protection (TRP) System is a CE certified cellular confinement system that provides guaranteed protection for the roots of mature trees from pedestrian and vehicular traffic. It distributes the weight of the traffic which in turn prevents subsoil compaction around the roots.
With the correct fill material it is completely porous allowing continued water permeation and gaseous exchange to ensure the protected tree stays healthy.
The system forms a high load bearing, shallow permeable sub-base above ground.
Why is Tree Root Protection Needed?
Due to the rate of urbanisation within the UK it is becoming increasingly common to find trees located in areas of development with Tree Preservation Orders (TPO’s). TPO’s ensure the protection of mature trees, especially when construction work is being carried out nearby.
Our CORE Tree Root Protection (TRP) cellular confinement system offers a compliant solution to creating a driveway, car park, road or track for temporary site access. The system creates a three dimensional erosion barrier and structural bridge that uniformly distributes weight-bearing loads preventing unwanted ground compaction in and around the feeder roots of the tree.
