CORE LP Help to Produce Latest Guidance Note 12, Published by Arboricultural Association

Available to read in full, here: The Association’s Guidance Note 12: The Use of Cellular Confinement Systems

The Arboricultural Association have recently published their latest guidance note for using cellular confinement systems near trees. The guidance note has been updated from the former guidance on this subject – the Arboricultural Practice Note 12, which was a short guide published in 2007. The updated one arrives as the Arboricultural Association Guidance Note 12 – describing in more detail how cellular confinement systems can be used for ground protection near trees, whilst drawing on industry experience to provide practical advice on how to accurately specify and install new hard surfacing above tree root zones.

Here at CORE LP, we were pleased to be able to provide the majority of the diagrams throughout the latest guidance note – calling upon our expert knowledge and experience of facing the issue of protecting trees with Tree Preservation Orders – using our CORE TREE ROOT PROTECTION SYSTEM®. Our Managing Director, Manni Keates contributed his diagrams to the guidance note and had this to say:

“I was happy to be able to offer the technical drawings and diagrams throughout the latest guidance note. The updated document is a great guide into the correct method and practical application needed to ensure the tree roots will remain protected – as well as describing the suitable surface finishes for cellular confinement systems. An A-Z of tree root protection.”

Manni Keates, Managing Director
