Limited rooting space is considered a major problem for growth of street trees. Different approaches to extend the soil volume accessible to roots have been implemented in Copenhagen, Denmark, during the last 15 years. The presented survey investigates growth and vitality of trees planted in 1) structural, load-bearing soil; 2) sand-based load-bearing soil; and 3) so-called super planting pits and trees planted in conventional planting pits. The trees were either street trees or situated on…

Tree development in structural soil – an empirical below-ground in-situ study of urban trees in Copenhagen, Denmark

AimsThe purpose of this study is to evaluate root and stem growth, nutrient status and soil properties of a tree planting in structural soil.MethodsRoot and stem growth were measured at an

Effect of Pit Design and Soil Composition on Performance of Pyrus calleryana Street Trees in the Establishment Period

Evapotranspirational cooling from urban trees is an effective way of reducing the urban heat island. However, the appropriate planting design to maximize the cooling benefit of street trees has not

The growth and health of street trees planted in permeable pavements

The growth and health of street trees can be limited by the amount of water available under impervious urban surfaces. Two approaches for improving the growth of street trees are the installation of

Some ecosystem service aspects of young street tree plantings

In urban forestry, the assessment and valuation of ecosystem services provided by urban trees are increasingly important both for the rationale of planting new trees and for retaining and managing

Assessment of Six Indicators of Street Tree Establishment in Melbourne, Australia

. A number of factors can influence successful street tree establishment, including inappropriate selection of stock, poor-quality stock, poor planting technique, insufficient irrigation, poor weed

Abstract Urban trees often suffer from poor soil conditions, compromising their health and safety and raising management issues. In compact development areas, planting sites are beset by critical

Urban Tree Establishment The Impact of Nursery Production Systems and Assessment Methods

In general, effects of production system were more pronounced at the rural site with the higher water availability, indicating that none of the studied production systems was superior to use in urban plantings.

DEM modelling analysis of tree root growth in street pavements

The coexistence of urban green spaces and infrastructure is often difficult. Trees find inhospitable environments in urban areas, whereas tree root systems can damage sidewalk, street and parking

Trees for tough urban sites

The main body of work in this thesis was to develop and test a working procedure for identification of new tree species and genotypes that holds the potential to diversify urban tree populations.

GROWING TREES IN ROAD FOUNDATION MATERIALS

Summary The use of traditional methods for establishing road foundations makes root growth from trees planted in holes within the foundations or close to them impossible. The performance of commonly

Comparison of Structural and Noncompacted Soils for Trees Surrounded by Pavement

Trees in areas surrounded by pavement often have inhospitable rooting environments, which shorten their useful life expectancy. This trial was established to compare five different soil treatment

A New Urban Tree Soil to Safely Increase Rooting Volumes Under Sidewalks

Soil compaction, which is necessary to safely support sidewalks and pavement, conflicts with urban trees' need for usable rooting space to support healthy tree growth. We have defined a rigid soil

Erratum: Testing of Structural Urban Tree Soil Materials for Use Under Pavement to Increase Street Tree Rooting Volumes

Quercus robur seedlings were grown in compacted stone-soil mixes known to meet engineering standards for pavement base compaction and strength. Root penetration into these materials was greatly
