The majority of general contractors have their own particular method of installing tree grates and frames. However, there are a few key tips which are essential and should be closely followed to insure a proper installation.
Frames - frame sections are to be bolted together. Caution must be taken to keep the frames level and completely square or round during the installation. It is recommended that a template be cut with a 1/4" clearance (all sides) larger than the tree grate. The template is then placed in the frame to keep all edges of the frame level and parallel during the pouring operation. This will result in a level and parallel frame on which the tree grating will be properly seated with a continuous bearing surface. Bolts to be supplied by others.
Tree Grates - After the tree is planted, the tree grates are fitted around the tree and into the frames. Tree grates provided in two piece sections are simply placed into the frame after any debris has been removed from the frame and the tree grate. When the grate is placed in the frame, the grates are to be flush with the top of the frame.
Tree grates provided in greater than two piece sections will have bolt lugs on the underneath side of the tree grate for bolting the sections together. It is also recommended that suitable supports be placed under the tree grate section. Bolts and supports are to be provided by others.
