Tree protection zone fencing, also referred to as TPZ, is the process of installing safety fences around sections of flora, trees and shrubs to protect them during construction. These areas are typically zoned off with visible mesh fabric. TPZ is usually marked up on Environmental Management Plans (EMP) however, Vegetation Management Plans (VMP) may also indicate where TPZ layouts need to be installed.
An EMP includes information about how your specific construction project might impact the natural environment during and after the project is completed. The plan sets out commitments for the contractor to follow to limit or avoid negative impacts on the environment around their worksite.
The Tree Protection Zone (TPZ) is the area set aside for the protection of a tree while construction is underway nearby. To avoid damage to a tree’s roots, a zone around the tree is set up by securely fencing it and TPZ warning signage is attached.
Finding where specific tree roots lie would require a root investigation with the help of a qualified arborist. As this method isn’t viable for every project, an estimate is used to determine the extent of the tree's roots. These normally grow out as far as the drip line. As a tree’s roots don’t grow in a perfect circle, the TPZ includes a reasonable distance from the tree’s stem. Safety fencing is set up around the tree protection zone to protect a tree’s roots from the impacts of construction. Therefore, no construction activity should occur in the zone such as a change in the soil level.

For project where tree protection zone fencing is required, we install a variant of our safety fence. This fence is industry-specific and features warning signs attached at specific distances. This style of demarcation is a cost-effective compliance measure to help contractors follow their EMP’s and demonstrate that they are taking their environmental responsibilities seriously.
Protecting trees is important for the wider community as some trees hold historical importance and they must be protected during construction. Depending on the type of construction you are taking on, some trees must be preserved to ensure a beautiful finished product i.e. a garden or home renovation. In other circumstances, trees must be protected for reasons stated by the Traditional Owners of the Land or a local government ordinance.
By establishing a tree protection zone, you are setting up the tree for a long and healthy life. With a protected root system, this tree can continue to grow and create more foliage in the area, encouraging healthy vegetation within the community and a thriving eco system.
When commencing construction, trees can quickly become hazards if not carefully protected. If large trucks back into the tree trunk, excavators dig into roots or crane booms get caught in branches, these can all pose serious risks for your workers and job site. Falling trees and branches can not only be a risk to workers but also materials and machinery. By setting up a TPZ, you are in fact, mitigating risk from your worksite.
