Show success underlines need for Geosynthetics expertise

Visitors to the ARB Show in June flocked to the stand of Wrekin Products, manufacturer of intelligent products for civil engineering, confirming widespread interest in its geosynthetics range and especially its new Tree Root Protection System.

There is ever-increasing demand by local authorities for maintaining tree health, against the backdrop of urgently needed development that requires the construction of access roads, cycle tracks and footpaths in close proximity to existing trees.

“Every project is different, so we have a wide range of complementary products to achieve exactly the right system to support and promote tree health while maintaining even distribution of the ground under the weight of traffic. We always recommend that customers discuss their needs with us first so we can devise the best possible solution, and ARB Show presented the perfect opportunity to do that.”
Roy Partington, Divisional Director – Geosynthetics
Without adequate protection, ground compaction can inflict significant stress and ultimately send trees into decline – which can lead to developers or contractors being prosecuted up to the value of £20,000 for any tree that is subject to a Tree Protection Order (TPO).

The Wrekin Tree Root Protection System is a simple, no-dig system that enables development without damaging existing trees, using ProtectaWeb geo-cell and Root-Tex 30™ and Root-Tex 10™ geotextiles. Positive feedback at ARB Show from landscape architects, arboricultural consultants and contractors supports Wrekin’s intention for the system to become the standard specification product for tree root protection.

Wrekin welcomed large numbers of visitors to its stand who were eager not only to find the right products for their projects but also a high degree of technical support.

The Wrekin geosynthetics team, led by Divisional Director Roy Partington, was on hand to offer site-specific design advice to visitors on the use of ProtectaWeb and associated grass paving products.
