The Silva Cell is a modular suspended pavement system that holds unlimited amounts of lightly compacted soil while supporting traffic loads beneath paving. The healthy soil housed within the Silva Cell serves two important functions: growing large trees and treating stormwater onsite.

The system can be used on almost any type of site, including:

The integration of green utilities like soil, trees and water into our urban areas substantially improves their design sustainability and helps alleviate some of our most pressing ecological challenges – including air and water quality, rising temperatures, flooding and erosion from daily rainfall events. It also meets H-20 loading standards and can be used in site applications of almost any type or size.
