Part 8

ANSI A300 (Part 8) - 2013 Root Management Standard

This part of the A300 Standard seeks to improve the quality, life expectancy, and safety of trees by promoting and facilitating the care of roots.

Part 8 Root Management Standard is a guide to writing good specifications on work, and addresses the following:

  • Trenching near a tree
  • Root pruning to mitigate tripping hazards and infrastructure damage
  • Managing stem-girdling and stem-circling roots

Please note that this A300 Part 8 standard takes precedence in the USA over previous tree care management standards and guidelines.
