Tree Pit Root Management System - Product Information

Our Tree Pit Root Management System enables trees to thrive in streetscape settings and eliminates the possibility of heaving concrete or pavers. By utilizing our state of the art plastic chamber units, this root management system guides the root growth down and away from the surface infrastructure and provides for healthier, more drought-resistant trees. Storm water is directed to flow from the surrounding hard surfaces into the plastic chamber units which comprise the tree pit. The storm water collects in the plastic chamber units which are set below the tree grate and filters through the soil. The soil consists of a mix of well-draining sand and planters topsoil (per the specification).
