The RD1050 RootDirector is a one piece modular root protection system.  It is designed to protect pavements and hard landscaped areas from potential damage by tree roots. The ribbed construction prevents root swirl and effectively diverts root growth downward and outward at the base. The dimensions are 1370 mm square at the base, 975 mm square at the top by 545 mm high. The clear opening in the top is 860 mm square. 

A tree planted within a RootDirector will have a deeper rooting growth pattern. This results in enhanced tree stability, drought resistance and protection for adjacent paved surfaces from root damage.

The RD1050 RootDirector is manufactured in the UK from 100% recycled material.
