VAC UK helps evaluate urban impact of tree growth
8th Jun 2022
Vacuum excavation has proved a useful tool in Bournemouth where a VAC UK team has been helping establish the impact of tree growth on local houses.
The team was briefed to find and excavate the roots of several large trees along Seaway Avenue in Christchurch.
Sean Gallagher, VAC UK’s Managing Director, said “Vacuum allows the skilled operators to dig carefully around each tree without causing it any harm.
“Of course, on suburban streets, where there is often bad recording of buried utilities and services, it also means that there is a minimal chance of a service strike.”
Vacuum excavation works within a tight footprint so there is decreased disruption for residents and work can progress more quickly because a smaller working area needs to be cordoned off from the public.
