Protect Tree Roots from Traffic Damage

When construction vehicles and equipment intrude upon a tree’s Critical Root Zone, they negatively impact the soil environment through compaction and damage to near-surface roots—ultimately endangering the structural integrity of the tree.  By distributing loading and limiting vertical stresses on the soil, the GEOWEB Tree Root Protection (TRP) system preserving the Critical Root Zone from damage, protecting the tree’s root mass.  GEOWEB TRP systems are especially beneficial in soft soil areas or where no-dig restrictions apply.

GEOWEB TRP Environmental Benefits

  • Promotes water infiltration
  • Allows lateral movement of air and water
  • Allows water and nutrient migration

GEOWEB Load Distribution Protects Root Zone

The majority of a tree’s root system is contained within the top three feet of the surface, and construction excavation and compaction can damage or even destroy roots to the point where trees cannot survive.  Through confined infill,  the GEOWEB® TRP system becomes a semi-rigid slab with exceptional load distribution characteristics.

By distributing and bridging applied loads, the GEOWEB TRP system significantly reduces vertical stresses that are typically applied to the underlying soil and root zone.   It offers a low-impact and economical way to access sites without causing damage to trees.

GEOWEB Tree Root Protection Benefits

  • High load distribution characteristics spreads vehicle and equipment loads on the upper surface, protecting the root zone.
  • Solution is quick to deploy and easy to install.
  • With permeable infill (topsoil/vegetation, aggregate, sand) the GEOWEB system offers environmental benefits: promotes water infiltration, allows lateral movement of air and water, allows water and nutrient migration.
  • Suitable for temporary or permanent applications.
