Trees in cities are often surrounded by paving. The surface of this paving is so heavily compacted that there is little opportunity for roots to grow underneath. And if they do find a way, it is often accompanied by a lot of damage, such as pavement lifting caused by rootgrowth. Tree planting solutions allow tree roots to develop beneath the road. If the goal is to grow big healthy functional urban trees, there should be a balance between canopy volume and root volume. And urban trees just can’t do without urban tree planting solutions.
