Trees and construction
Cambistat - http://www.cambistat.com/Cambistat/index.asp
is the part of tree work that most interests me. The damage
to trees during construction is both bothersome and interesting.
Bothersome because it never has to happen in the first place
(in most cases) and interesting because of all the unique
ways we have to alleviate this problem. As usual, it is
always easier to avoid a problem than it is to have to fix
it later. Unfortunately, we are usually called in after
the problem has been created. Home builders and developers
are very good at what they do, but I would never dream of
walking onto a construction site and telling them how they
should build a home!
times the damage is quite obvious (nicks to the bark of
a tree, broken branches, etc) but more common and not readily
apparent is the significant damage done underground to the
root system (broken, smothered roots and compacted soil).
Whether you buy a lot or an existing house, you expect your
trees to be with you for a long time, and they can with
proper prevention and care. Some root damage to trees might
not show up for 5-10 years down the road and a homeowner
likely won’t connect it to construction damage but
very often, that is the primary cause.
Having a Certified Arborist work with you and your builder/developer
will pay huge dividends in the long run. Helping you decide
which trees to save (and which not to save) is part of our
job. Sometimes it does makes more sense to remove a tree
(that won’t survive the long haul) before the house
is built. We can help you make those decisions.
The International Society of Arboriculture ISA has some
very valuable information on these issues. As I mentioned
before about soil injection, most construction jobs are
going to have some stressed trees when the building is done.
We use a chemical called Cambistat which is a growth regulator.
It helps the tree put most of its resources into defense
and helps fight off drought problems. Follow this link to
