A Guide to on Protecting Trees on Development Sites!

Protecting trees on development sites is important for preserving the environment and maintaining the balance of ecosystems. Here is a guide to protecting trees on development sites:

  1. Conduct a site survey: Before beginning any construction, it’s important to conduct a thorough survey of the site to identify any significant trees that may be affected by the development.
  2. Develop a Tree Protection Plan: Based on the results of the site survey, create a Tree Protection Plan that outlines measures to protect significant trees during construction.
  3. Use Tree Protection Zones (TPZs): TPZs are areas surrounding trees that are protected from construction activities. The size of TPZs depends on the size of the tree and the type of construction.
  4. Minimize soil compaction: Soil compaction from heavy equipment can damage tree roots and impact tree health. Use boardwalks and mats to protect trees from soil compaction.
  5. Avoid direct damage to tree trunks and branches: Use caution when operating heavy equipment near trees and make sure that equipment does not come into direct contact with tree trunks and branches.
  6. Provide adequate water: During construction, trees may require additional water to compensate for soil disturbance and to maintain healthy growth.
  7. Monitor tree health: Regularly monitor the health of protected trees and take corrective action if necessary.
  8. Implement post-construction measures: After construction is complete, implement measures to support the long-term health of protected trees, such as mulching and watering.

By following these guidelines, you can help protect trees on development sites and preserve the environment for future generations. It’s important to work with experienced professionals and to comply with local and state regulations for protecting trees on development sites.
