Tree Growth & Survival, CU-Soil installed in an appropriately sized rootzone space, gives the tree a significantly improved chance of long term survival and of being a benefit to its surroundings and the local environment.
Reduced Tree Root damage to pavements. CU-Soil has been shown to promote the downward growth of tree roots – reducing cracked & damaged pavements surfaces and thereby, the consequential liability claims.
CU-Soil is SUDS compliant and the installation of a large CU-Soil rootzone space can, along with providing a healthy space for tree growth, it can act as an attenuation space that can help to meet the SUDS obligations for the development.
Simplified Groundworks – CU-Soil is quick and easy to install. Installation is similar installation as any soil or rootzone material – just install the CU-Soil in 150mm “lifis” and compact each layer.
Environmentally friendly – No underground plastic structures to be installed.
CU-Soil is reusable and can be excavated and re-used – without destroying the usefulness of the material.
A quick and easy way to install a stable, load bearing base material that is suitable for construction of access roads, car parks and footpaths and is suitable for all types of surfacing options, block paving, asphalt, and geo-grids with stone fill.
Tree Anchoring systems – CU-Soil forms the ideal consolidated rootzone material which makes it ideal for use with the most commonly specified rootball fixing systems.
Underground Services – pipes and ducts – CU-Soil is safe to use and is the ideal material for use as a back-fill material when service ducts are installed adjacent to the tree pit.
CU-Soil allows for total flexibility and facilitates the installation of a healthy rootzone growing medium in even the most restricted and irregular shaped urban spaces.
Ecobound Ecogrid Tree Pit Surfacing: CU-Soil provides the ideal load bearing and stable foundation for the installation of Rein bound stone surfacing, such as the Ecobound Ecogrid surfacing system, it has structurally stability equal to standard ‘Type 1’ aggregates used for sub-base construction.
