In reply to Protecting a concrete wall from near by trees by Steve Miner on May 15th, 2001 02:18 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hi Steve,

Protect the wall from what? The root system? The pine needles?

The WRC has a shallow root system. So, depending on how deep your wall goes AND how 'shallow' the roots are, I don't know if you have to worry about the roots possibly undermining the wall. (This is problem #1 ...)

As for the roots being able to 'grab' onto the wall, itself (underground), again, I don't know the answer but this is problem #2.

If I'm way off, maybe you need to say more about what's going on w/your project. (It can only help us to help you.)
