The risk of flooding and groundwater depletion is increasing due to the increase of impervious area in an urban area that reduces the volume of infiltration and increases the outflow of rainwater. The objective of this study is to examine the impact of installation of roadside tree protectors with infiltration pipes in terms of the change of the infiltration rate. Through this study, it has been attested that roadside tree protectors with infiltration pipes increased the infiltration rate and decreased water level on the ground, and could be applied in an urban area as the low impact development (LID) facilities.
