Having a plan to protect trees BEFORE you start clearing your land is ESSENTIAL! By the time you’ve broken ground, it’s already too late.
If your excavation and building team don’t know how to protect trees properly, then you can pretty much kiss any trees close to the construction site goodbye.
Even worse, you can assume that any tree with a Critical Root Zone that has been damaged or compacted will die slowly, sometimes over the course of several years. Dropping heavy limbs as the tree’s health and stability fail.
