What is Tree Preservation?
Tree preservation is a tree care service most commonly used when construction, renovation or other potentially harmful activities are being performed close to a tree.
The process seeks to minimize the chance of a tree being accidentally damaged, either by machinery, soil changes, or other results of side effects of construction.
Many counties in Northern Virginia (including Arlington & Fairfax) actually require steps towards tree preservation to be taken during construction and renovation.
Steps Involved in Tree Preservation
Tree preservation is a multistep process that is best left to the professionals. When you hire an arborist to handle your tree preservation project, expect to see some or all of the following precautions taken:
The first step in any tree preservation project begins with pruning deadwood to prevent/eliminate diseased or dying limbs. This provides a healthy foundation for the preservation steps to follow.
Tree Preservation Fencing
By surrounding trees with fences (highlighted with brightly colored warning flags), workers operating heavy machinery will know to steer clear from the trees. Arborists must calculate the CRZ and drip line of the tree to identify the best location for the fence.
Root pruning and preparation needs to be completed to ensure that a tree’s roots are not damaged during the construction process. Professional equipment and knowledge are incredibly important for this process.
It may also be necessary to place mulch overtop of root zones to provide a protective cushion for heavy machinery passing through.
Compacted Soil Remediation
Soil surrounding a tree can be compacted and damaged during construction. This can reduce the amount of water and oxygen that makes its way to a tree’s roots. By remediating and irrigating the soil surrounding a tree after construction, an arborist can help to ensure that a tree’s growth won’t be stunted.
