A new guidance document relating to cellular confinement systems near trees has been produced by Ben Rose (Bosky Trees) and the Arboricultural Association.
The use of above-ground cellular confinement systems to install surfacing near trees has been employed in the UK for over 20 years, but their use is not always a simple matter and the limitations of the approach are often misunderstood. This document draws on industry experience to provide practical advice on how to specify and install hard surfacing near trees using cellular confinement systems. The aim of the good practice guide is to provide up-to-date information that will be helpful to arboriculturists, landscape architects, engineers and building contractors.
We invite anyone with an interest in this subject to review the draft for consultation, currently available on our website, and to contribute any comments, suggestions or proposed technical amendments. If referring to specific parts of the document we would ask that you reference the page or paragraph number in your response. Please send your feedback to CCSconsultation@trees.org.uk
Consultation ends at midnight on Sunday March 15th.
