Root Directors (not root barriers) - Observations please

Hello all.

Just a quickie, does anyone have any observations or direct long term 
experience of trees planted inside root directors. I am currently specifying 
them for use when planting road side trees in new developments as I'm hoping 
to avoid the mass of large surface roots that can sometimes form directly 
around the basal main stem and result in the usual lifting of pavements, 
kerbing and tamac.

I specified root directors while organising tree planting in the UK, but have 
not be able to return to assess their effectiveness.

Regards, Tim
