Terram Geocell tree root protection is a cellular confinement system fabricated from a permeable geotextile and is designed as the perfect solution for tree root protection where a road, access route or driveway is required.
The system not only stabilises the ground, but ensures that the roots beneath are protected from heavy vehicle forces on the surface. Terram Geocell is supplied flat packed and is easily opened to form the cell structure and is simply pinned to the ground using metal fixing pins. Terram Geocell ensures that downward forces by vehicles are spread laterally educing loads on the underlying soils. Without the cellular system, the surface would become compacted and rutted with the forces pushing downwards damaging the tree roots and resulting in the possible death of the tree.
Terram Geocell can be used in many slope protection applications often eliminating complicated and expensive construction techniques. Its three dimensional structure provides a blanket of ‘cells’ on the slope surface which can contain a variety of infill materials depending on the application; either topsoil, aggregates, from sands and gravels to larger stones and cobbles, and concrete of various strengths and surface finishes. This greatly improves resistance to erosive forces such as rainwater run-off on steep or unstable slopes, or slopes exposed to severe hydraulic or mechanical stresses.
