Planting trees into made up ground or ‘fill’ material is extremely challenging. By its very nature, the requirements for heavy civil construction fill materials are completely opposed to the horticultural root zone requirements for trees.

The international engineering consultants advising on the project drew on GreenBlue Urban’s experience in the design and construction of structurally stable but root friendly tree pit designs to ensure that the trees had the best possible chance of success.

Continuous sub surface RootCell structures means that as the trees establish, they have access to a large volume of good quality soil for long term requirements. This soil structure is ventilated using GreenBlue Urban ArborVents and the services running parallel to the rooting corridor are protected by ReRoot 1000 root deflecting barrier.
