Construction Damage Mitigation

Construction Damage to Trees Includes:

  • Physical wounds from trucks or equipment hitting tree trunks and branches
  • Cutting of tree roots
  • Compaction of root zones by equipment and even foot traffic going repeatedly over the same area
  • Grade changes within critical root zone areas
  • Drought damage since irrigation is often turned off during construction

Prevention of Construction Damage to Trees
Once the tree damage occurs it is often difficult or impossible to correct.

  • Avoiding the tree damage is very important
  • Set up meeting(s) with construction team, arborist and property owner well before construction starts
  • Evaluate all possible options to avoid or minimize damage
