PLANT A BIG IDEA. WATCH IT CHANGE A CITY.
DeepRoot Green Infrastructure develops solutions to enhance urban forests and surrounding watersheds along streets, parking lots, plazas, and other urban areas.
We were founded in 1976, when an industrial designer tripped on an uprooted sidewalk and ruined a new pair of shoes. This led him to develop the first commercially available tree root barriers. From that simple start, we grew to a leading urban landscape products and ecosystem services supplier, focused on creating healthier, more sustainable communities through the integration of trees, soil, and stormwater into the urban environment.
Do we need big trees in cities? How much soil should a tree have? How do we help trees grow bigger? These are some of the questions that will affect the ecological future of our cities.
We are fortunate to work with amazing contributing consultants who are experts in the fields of urban trees, soils, low-impact development, stormwater management, and product engineering. These partners have been essential to our success and we are very grateful for their ongoing support and expertise.
DeepRoot's work and Silva Cell projects have been featured in many great publications, from industry magazines to local newspapers. Stay up to date with the latest news here.
