Tree Protection

Trees play a central role in not only maintaining nutrient-rich soil, providing shelter and habitat for animals but they are also important for their carbon sequestration.

This contractor has installed a tree and nature corridor protection zone along the entire east boundary of the project adjacent to a railway line maintaining a link between a wooded area to the north and open landscaped/detention pond area to the south.

The tree protection concept was developed between the contractor, the arboriculturist and the local authority tree officer with the aim of keeping the components simplistic, quick to install, easily maintainable, reusable and had minimum impact on the environment.

On this basis 2.4m wooden fence posts have been installed with heras fencing panels mechanically fixed to the wooden posts, which allows for all components used to be dismantled and then reused once the project is complete.

Clear signage is displayed along the full length of the fencing with it marked up on the project’s Environmental Constraints ECO map and included within the site induction.
