Root Investigation and Mapping

What is root investigation and mapping?

Root investigation and mapping is the process of investigating the root structure of a tree or group of trees. This is done in order to determine the size, location, and extent of the roots. This information can be used to help preserve trees when development is in close proximity, as well as to diagnose problems with trees that may be causing damage to buildings or infrastructure.

Why is tree root investigation and mapping important?

When it comes to understanding the health of a tree, the root system is just as important as the branches and leaves. Tree root investigation and mapping can help identify any potential problems with a tree's roots, such as damage, decay, or obstruction. This information can then be used to make decisions about how to best care for the tree.

Mapping a tree's root system can also be helpful in planning for future construction projects. For example, if you know where a tree's major roots are located, you can avoid digging near them when you're working on a new project or construct around them using tree-sensitive methods. This can help minimise damage to the tree and prevent costly repairs later on.
