Give Trees The Space To Grow Rapidly Without Impacting Local Infrastructure

Urban tree planting require an adequate supply of loose, well aerated, moist and uncompacted soil structure in order to thrive. This enables tree roots to obtain nutrients, oxygen and water – all essential for healthy tree growth.

When planting trees in urban areas, trees compete for space, with multiple risk factors – such as interference with underground etc etc etc – leading to increased maintenance and repair costs together with reduced tree health. Many of the landscape products currently available for trees are not sustainable, generate plastic waste, are ineffective, have high implementation costs and possess lower durability.
