Subject: Fill over roots [Scanned]

Dear forum

I have been asked if its ok to raise the levels over some very
significant rootplates. Its amenity grassland and that won't change. It
bothers me that the sum of my knowledge seems to be that 4 inches per
annum is rule of thumb ok as told to me at Merrist Wood in the 20th

Assuming the level at the trunk(s) remains unchanged I am invited to
agree fill of around 750mm topsoil onto the existing amenity grassland.
What provision can I specify so that the roots beneath continue to get
their water and air?

The trees are 6 magnificent Victorian Planes.

Does anyone have any practical insight they can impart?

Thanks as always
