The World Beneath Our Feet: When Trees and Asphalt Collide

True Lines, Inc.

When Trees and Asphalt Collide

Parking lots and roads are home to a complex underground network, with tree roots weaving their way through the soil below our streets and sidewalks. While trees provide immense benefits, their quest for nutrients and water sometimes leads to conflict with the surrounding asphalt. As the trees grow, they can cause the asphalt to rise up and break. Since these gaps have jagged and uneven edges, they can become tripping hazards or cause damage to car tires or undercarriage. Tree root damage can lead to injuries and accidents if not handled in a timely manner.

With care and creativity, we can find ways to resolve the minor battles between asphalt and tree root. We recommend cutting out the damaged asphalt, trimming back all small roots to the tree and install a root barrier to prevent regrowth. Then, clean debris from the area, pour hot asphalt into the cut-out sections, and tamp down until fully compacted.

Very professional from start to finish. Pulled necessary permits and completed work on time and did a perfect job. Would recommend especially for commercial projects because they are willing to work on weekends when my office was closed.

From a customer email: We are a small Mobile park consisting of 55 units and hired True Lines to number all of our driveways. They did a outstanding job start to finish. We had a rain delay and they were very accommodating with rescheduling the following week which happen to be Thanksgiving week. They showed up on time and completed the job in one day. We were very pleased with the service and price point. I would recommend True Lines and their professionalism for any job requiring their expertise.

Great experience Great service Great Price and Great Job. True lines seal coated and stripped our 54 unit townhouse development Nov 2023. They worked with us by dividing the job into 3 separate jobs to give our residents a much easier time accessing their respective units. We had some rain delays but the they communicated the adjusted schedule properly. The job looks great and we did not have any complaints from our owners - who like to complain about everything. So I would highly recommend TrueLines. Paul Bradshaw Treasurer Key Colony HOA Ft Pierce
