York City Centre Regeneration
What we did
Green-tech Specifier advised on everything needed for successfully planting a tree in an urban landscape setting. This included the Geo-Cellular Raft System which is strong geocellular units that lock together to form a raft system that sits within the tree pit and provides load bearing support. Green-tree Subsoil was specified as well as Geo-Cellular Raft soil; which in conjunction with the Geo-Cellular Raft System eliminates compaction of the soil and growing media within the pit; offering an ideal growing environment for trees in an urban setting to establish and flourish.
Green-tech’s tree anchoring kit was specified to secure the trees. The Mona tree irrigation system was chosen because of its ease of install and effectiveness in delivering water to the tree roots at a consistent level. Gt RootBarrier was installed to protect the nearby utility pipes from future damage of spreading tree roots. It effectively controls the roots whilst protecting them from pollutants and acids in the soil. To finish, a contemporary cast iron tree guard and grille was installed with bespoke etching specific to York City Council.
