ROOTS TENSILE TESTS

ROOTS TENSILE TESTS: A root system with excellent mechanical properties reinforces the soil  increasing its shear strength

The results obtained from tensile tests, have shown that the roots of these plants have a considerable resistance, similar to the most resistant shrubs and arboreal species indigenous and other exotic tree species. The plants tested, also, have expressed an intensity of very high rooting, especially considering the age of the specimens in available (only a few months). The combination of these two characteristics make this type of plants are safe interest in the field of stabilization of embankments and slopes; interest which must be assessed in relation to the great adaptability of these plants to particularly strict contexts in Climate and soil terms, where instead of the native species often have the speed of growth lower and reach depths limited.
