Preformed root control for individual trees.

Designed for the protection of pavements and hard landscaped areas, the ribbed RootDirector system prevents root swirl and diverts root growth downward and outward thus avoiding the unsightly and hazardous root damage so commonly seen in urban areas.

The RootDirector’s rigid, one-piece construction makes installation simple. As a product within the ‘Arborsystem’ range, it is compatible with the RootRain irrigation system, RootCell / StrataCell load bearing soil soil structure and our extensive tree grille and guard range. The RootDirector ‘RS’ range is specically designed to locate securely into the RootSpace soil cell system.
