I'm currently looking at a landscape scheme with trees proposed for
planting in soft areas but adjacent to footpaths, etc.
Some of the trees are shown as being within 0.2 m of the footpaths.
The trees buttress root zone of rapid taper hasn't been considered,
thus the potential for future damage to the footpaths.
I'm going to be asking for this point to be considered, so was
wondering how much you would account for the zone of rapid taper of
the structural roots in order to avoid damage to the footpaths.
I thought that the following might be appropriate:
Small growing trees: 0.5 m.
Medium growing trees: 0.8 m.
Large growing trees. 1.2 m.
Any thoughts on these distances?
Thanks as always.
