GEOWEB® TREE ROOT PROTECTION (TRP)
Critical Root/Tree Protection Zone is the minimum area beneath a treff that must remain undisturbed to preserve a sufficient amount of root mass in order to give a tree a chance of survival. When construction equipment and vehicles intrude a tree’s Critical Root Zone, they can cause negative impacts to the soil environment including compaction of the soil, damage to near-surface roots and ultimately endanger the structural integry of the tree. 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 may not survive.


PROTECTION THROUGH LOAD DISTRIBUTION

By distributing and bridging applied loads, the Geoweb TRP system reduces vertical stresses that are typically applied to the underlying soil and root zone. The protection system is especially beneficial in areas where weak subsoil or no-dig restrictions exist.
