A time lapse shot for ConcreteVA.com.

Here is a quick view of the concrete pour for a sitting wall around a 125 year old tree. It took some detailed planning for the hole footings for the wall.

That was the key to this project, because you don’t pick where the holes go, the tree does. Finding those holes where we could keep the form work symmetrical around the tree was a bear.

We were unable to install a typical footing for this project because of the large tree roots. When we finally got around to pouring the wall we put sand at the bottom of the forms over the tree roots. This will give that beautiful old maple some time to grow before it will affect the wall.

More pictures will be coming later.
