A range of rigid, one-piece tree root protection barriers, available in four sizes. Designed for the protection of pavements and hard landscaped areas, the ribbed RootDirector system prevents root swirl and diverts root growth downward and outward thus avoiding the unsightly and hazardous root damage so commonly seen in urban areas.

Features and benefits:

  • Designed for the protection of pavements and hard landscaped areas.
  • Manufactured from recycled 100% plastic.
  • The barrier is constructed as a one piece component resulting in a simple installation.
  • Prevents root swirl and diverts root growth downward and outward.
  • Encourages deep root growth.
  • Provides improved drought tolerance and enhanced tree stability through encouraging deeper rooting.

Applications:

Compatible with Arborsystem products:

  • RootRain irrigation.
  • Cast iron/ fabricated tree grilles and guards.
  • Arborguy Root Ball Guying underground guying system.
  • RootSpace/ StrataCell system.

Options

Irrigation facility:

Comprising air or water vents fitted in one or more corners of the barrier. The holes divert surface water to the base of the tree pit and provide additional ventilation to the root zone.
