Designing for the Urban Forest

Cities are changing.

Apartments are rising, roads are expanding, and our once loved green spaces are being crowded out.

Having trees in our cityscapes offers immeasurable improvements to the overall function of our modern societies.

Urban trees support stronger social connections and  physical activity as residents spend more time outdoors

Trees also provide an increased sense of happiness and  well-being, not to mention the resources and habitats they provide for other species here on earth.

Correct use of quality soil, tested against performance specifications, is the ‘secret sauce’ for tree growth and attaining the vision you have for your project.

Advances in design and manufacturing, and understanding of tree root morphology, have brought systems to the global market that are cost-effective to make and install.

Our cities are designed in a way that when it rains, the water is directed away into catchment basins and pipes, which leaves street trees without rain water

Porous paving helps to grow healthy urban trees, through the admission of vital air and water to their rooting zones.

“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.”
