The best protection against sidewalk damage is to plant the right tree in the right place. Other preventative measures include installing root barriers at time of planting and encouraging deep root growth.
Proper watering during the first few years after tree planting can encourage deep root growth and help protect sidewalks from future tree conflicts
Planting the right tree in the right place maximizes benefits for the entire community
