Using ground penetrating radar to locate and categorise tree roots under urban pavements

Abstract Street trees are commonly associated with pavement cracking and lifting, resulting in costly repair of the pavement and/or removal of the affected tree/s. This study used Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to evaluate the effectiveness of three different prototype permeable pavement designs in reducing pavement damage caused by street tree roots (Melaleuca quinquenervia). Initial tests conducted in a …
