Den Bynære Havneområde, Århus Harbour Denmark, StratacellAfter the success of a previous project within the City of Århus, the city architects and landscape architects decided to continue using the Stratacell™ concept on a big harbour refurbishment. This high profile project is extensive and installation will take many years. By working with Milford (Citygreen’s® Scandinavian partner company) using Stratacells they will help ensure the trees continue to grow and develop into large established trees whilst growing in a windy urban environment.


Installation of Stratacells


Installation of Stratacells was overseen by one of Milford’s horticultural advisors to ensure peace of mind for both the city and the landscape contractor that the project was up to the highest standards. The landscape contractor was amazed how quickly each tree pit could be built up. Landscape architects from the area were also invited to come and watch installation as this gives inspiration and practical knowledge for future projects.



Stratacells InstallationThe 32 Platanus acerfolia trees were planted in November 2011 (in the second stage, after these photos) and a review of the trees including materials will be conducted during the next 5 years in view of using the same concept in the other areas of the harbour when they come up for development.

“Our experience, in working with a Citygreen Design Studio was second to none. We found responses from the design studio to be very timely, and technically thorough. We went backwards and forwards a number of times, looking at different iterations of the design and, nothing was too much trouble to examine and explore different possibilities. I would highly recommend the Citygreen Design Studio to any future client considering using your services.”

- Sandra Smith, Principal Landscape Architect, City Of Monash -

“We are big on compliance on all projects, and the fact that their SmartCertify cloud platform covers all bases, and supports their 20 year warranties, is critical – especially that these pits are being installed under roadways and footpaths.”

- Johny Purkaystha, Civil Program Engineer, Central Coast Council -

"I reviewed all the previous projects that we have installed in the past couple years using your product and I can happily report back that we have 0% mortality in the soil cells, which is incredible!"
