For tree root protection the bulk density of the soil needs to allow for air and water to pass to the tree roots, and for those roots to be able to grow in such a way that they support and nourish the tree. Soil compaction is the main enemy of tree roots, and traffic is the principal cause of that compaction.
With planning requirements now covering tree root protection on many sites, the need to accommodate and work within these requirements is increasing every year. The Geoweb® cellular confinement system is a control measure for tree root protection under BS5837/2012 and APN12.
Alongside products for the protection of existing and established trees, Greenfix also supplies a range that provides mulching and weed control for newly planted trees and shrubs.
Greenfix also supplies barriers for the diversion of tree roots, and the control of Japanese Knotweed and other invasive species.
