Model C Series - Root Director
Trees planted in urban settings often require root systems to be directed below the level of hard pavements and road curbs, to prevent costly damage due to root heave. Once a road pavement surface or road curb is broken, water penetrates and encourages further shallow root growth, and the extent of pavement damage escalates rapidly. Often the most economical solution is to remove the tree, to the loss and detriment of the community and environment.
Planting trees with a properly designed root management system is a small cost to pay compared to the cost over time of infrastructure repair, not to mention litigation.
The new C series Root Director range carries forward the function of the original RD640 Root Director, including tapered sides, root training ribs, and seamless sides, with the additional benefit of an integrated circular lawn edge at the top surface for a neat finish to your project. Root Director C series is available in two sizes to suit the most popular rootball dimensions.
