Tree Root Barrier Applications and Root Treatment

DeepRoot Tree Roots Barriers prevent tree roots from entering and penetrating the landscape structure they were intended to protect by applying a special hydraulic pressure into the soil beneath the tree. These roots are then removed or redirected through an enclosed pipe system to prevent root intrusion, tree root decay, and tree root problems. Deep Root Tree Roots Barriers have been scientifically engineered for efficient root penetration, efficient root removal.

Root Barrier Installation

Deep Root Barrier components include a large diameter cylinder designed to cover and anchor trees of various sizes and shapes, and two smaller cones designed to align with trees. Tree roots will grow in the soil around the tree root barrier; however, it is recommended that you remove any debris before planting new tree roots into the soil around the tree root barrier, in order to prevent tree root decay from occurring. Tree roots will feed on the nutrients contained within the soil around the root barrier, but they can also cause damage to other tree roots.

Tree roots are a natural part of the growth cycle for trees and need to be monitored for root problems, root rot, and root invasion. Tree root problems are common in planted landscapes and when trees become infected or diseased, their overall health and appearance suffer as well. Most foot problems can be prevented, however, by removing the tree root from its natural environment, and providing a healthy tree root bed environment with the proper drainage.
