Given a limited amount of soil space available for urban tree root growth, two main systems have been developed to provide rooting space for trees: supported pavement technology and structural growing media. This session covers both research and applied practice relevant to these two approaches.
Identify basic soil types and commercial structures common for urban tree volume goals.
Understand the plant response differences from the different treatments.
Understand soil volume goals and how they affect urban tree canopy.
Understand implementation of the research into municipal code.
