Conservation and Protection of Trees


In Quebec, land rehabilitation and construction work are a major cause of decline of urban and suburban trees. Any excavation, embankment or even simple circulation of machinery on land may have serious implications for the health of the trees.

Unfortunately, the magnitude of root deployment of trees is often misunderstood and high value trees gradually decline in health after construction work when protective measures could have saved them. The presence of mature trees adds a lot of value for real estate projects, especially for homes. Experts in the field agree on the minimum and optimum protection measures to be taken for the conservation of trees when nearby excavation is required.

At Antidote Arboriculture, we are familiar with these protection measures and can help you integrate them into plans and specifications thus allowing you to retain mature trees despite the work required.
