Trees help remove many pollutants from the air and take in thousands of gallons of rain water which helps prevent flash flooding but this can only be achieved when the root system of the tree is able to access it. If trees are unable to access air, water and other nutrients due for instance to highly compacted ground or unsuitable surfacing like macadum, they will spread their roots in search of it causing millions of pounds worth of damage to underground services such as water, gas and drain pipes. Roots can crack pavements causing trip hazards, which often result in injury to pedestrians and expensive compensation claims each year for cash strapped councils.
Since the products launch in November 2014 Trailflex® has been utilised on a number of high profile projects across the UK such as The University of York and a 1.5-kilometre installation at New Hall School in Chelmsford.
