Protecting trees on construction sites Workshop

About the Workshop

The workshop is in three parts. 

 

Part one includes a brief and basic recap on tree biology, it takes a look at root system architecture and fundamental tree allometry, and introduces some empirical research that investigates the effects of root removal.

 

Part two is all about the soil. It includes a recap on soil texture, structure and all the important ingredients for a healthy rhizosphere .

 

Part three takes a brief look at the RMA from an arborist’s perspective, and how the regulatory system influences our actions when it comes to tree preservation, and the role of the works arborist in that process. It wraps up with a selection of tricks and tips for tree protection techniques on work sites. 

The workshop content is relevant to anyone who has an interest in protecting trees from construction impacts, both during the design and implementation stages. 

This workshop is a Christchurch City Council requirement for all council approved Supervising Arborists
