Rooting Around to Protect Trees

TPMD is delivering a unique, tailored approach to caring for trees in proximity to its working sites. Using NJUG’s best practice guidelines as its starter, the HSEQ Manager is working with each site to look at individual tree types and root patterns, along with the possible impacts and mitigation of root damage.

Working across Thanet on Southern Water’s major sewer upgrade, which aims to safeguard the environment for the future, it is essential that TPMD mitigates the risk of any environmental damage while delivering the scheme.

With ageing Victorian sewer pipes beneath Ramsgate and Broadstairs, this upgrade will see TPMD working in streets ranging from tight terraces to sweeping avenues, making it impractical to have a one-size-fits-all approach.

By collating this information, we created tailored management plans for each tree sitting close to trial holes or sites – which we believe will be a very different approach to the one taken by the Victorian miners that originally constructed the network!
