This course will provide instruction on the latest methods and techniques in tree planting, covering all aspects from complete tree pit systems, to including how to integrate storm-water management, bio-retention and storm-water retention into tree pit designs. Time will be spent reviewing the benefits of how structural soil cells can provide a healthy sustainable urban forest, plus technical information to show that these types of systems can and do meet all the necessary demands from engineers, arborists and landscape architects.
