The Benefits of Tree Root Mapping

tree root mapping

One of the most important parts of an arboricultural impact report is tree root mapping. A thorough investigation of the tree roots will allow the owner of the property, local councils, and commercial developers to identify the best locations for development. The focus of root mapping will help to identify areas of development where the roots are likely to cause a lot of damage. It also allows for a clearer picture of the extent of damage to the root system.

The process of tree root mapping requires a professional arborist to perform the task. Complete Arbor Care has an airspade pheumatic soil excavation tool. This tool utilizes compressed air to expose voids between tree roots. The tool is a safe and efficient way to inspect the roots without damaging the tree. It also does not disturb underground utilities. Only the soil is damaged, which is preferable to conventional digging. For more information on tree root mapping, contact Complete Arbor Care.

To begin tree root mapping, a certified arborist will use a penetrating radar to scan the ground. Then, they will carefully dig up soil to expose the roots. These methods include hand excavation, hydrovac, and air spade. Because of their ability to damage the tree roots, this process is expensive and time-consuming. But the benefits are worth it. The reports prepared will save you money and time. So, if you’re planning to build, tree root mapping is a good idea.

The tree root mapping process involves the scanning of the ground with a penetrating radar. Then, the mapping team will carefully remove the soil to expose the roots. This process may involve hand excavation, air spade, or a hydrovac. The best method is a combination of these methods. The report will include a thorough analysis of the root system, as well as recommendations for remedial action. Then, the tree root map will be used to make recommendations for future work.

When it comes to tree root mapping, the results are invaluable for the development industry. These reports will inform developers on what the potential development will impact, based on the location of existing trees. Once this data is determined, the developer can determine how much space is available for development and the impacts of removing the trees. This information will be useful to the developer in the process of building a new building, and can even help them with future maintenance.

In addition to ground penetrating radar, ground-penetrating radar can also be used for tree root mapping. This method is best used for large trees, as the soil beneath can potentially cause damage to the roots. The accuracy of the data can help assess the stability of the tree and the impact of its roots on the built environment. A thorough root mapping report can help the developer plan the construction of the new structure. A properly prepared report can also be a great aid for the homeowner.
