Silva Cell Trees Years of Growth

Some say a picture is worth 1,000 words, how about 1,000 cubic feet?

Silva Cells have supported trees throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom for over a decade. From University plazas to corporate office headquarters, and streetscapes, trees installed with Silva Cells are thriving. At a minimum, each tree on all of these projects had 515ft³ (14.5m³). Large and healthy amounts of soil volume lead to large and healthy trees.
