About the Instructor

DeepRoot Green Infrastructure develops solutions to enhance urban forests and surrounding watersheds in city streets, parking lots, campuses, and other heavily-paved areas. Silva Cell, our flagship product, is an underground framework for containing lightly compacted soil that supports large trees and absorbs runoff from rain, increasing air and water quality, reducing energy loads, mitigating heat island effect and nurturing trees for a long life in their communities. Headquartered in San Francisco with locations in Vancouver, and London, DeepRoot has more than forty years of experience helping trees thrive in cities, nurturing over 500 blocks of urban treescape in the built environment around the world.

Tree spacing, sizing the tree opening, and water harvesting are discussed as three design issues that impact the long-term health of urban trees.

This webinar will discuss the biological and arboriculture basis for understanding the requirements and look at typical design decisions and how they affect the long term project performance. This webinar shares how design decision can be made to achieve the design goals while meeting the needs of the trees. Ways to change the design approach in order to create sustainable design decisions are discussed.
