Interested in a Co-Funded Tree Pit Trial?*

Implement and monitor an advanced treepit system with funding, design and installation support

The benefits of trees in urban areas are clear, with councils seeking to create beautiful green urban spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy. Citygreen’s structural modules enable trees to thrive by providing enough uncompacted soil and the required space for roots to grow (without damaging surrounding infrastructure). They’re also made from 100% recycled plastic, and offer sought-after Water Sensitive Urban Design – meaning stormwater discharge is slowed (reducing the risk of flooding), pollutants are filtered out, and trees obtain the benefit of rainwater delivered to their root systems. Citygreen supports councils with a demonstrated commitment to green building best practice with its Co-Funded Tree Pit Trial Program.

The Benefits?

The benefits of tree pits are clear, but environmental data and growth figures are subject to significant variation due to geographical influences. Conducting a pilot project in your region enables you to measure growth and environmental data, in the climatic zone of your choice. Multiple pilot projects allow you to compare several variables, before selecting the most successful solution for further implementation. Citygreen covers a significant portion of the cost, as detailed on this form, to enable field testing of latest tree growth and rainwater management systems in your region.

“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!"
