Silva Cell Overview

The Silva Cell is a modular suspended pavement system that uses soil volumes to support large tree growth and provide powerful on-site stormwater management through absorption, evapotranspiration, and interception.

With Silva Cell, you can meet regional stormwater requirements using underground bioretention in tight urban spaces. The Silva Cell is a stormwater BMP that leverages soil and trees to provide water quality and pollutant control, peak overflow reduction, low maintenance, and uses any type of soil to grow big healthy trees.

Unlike some bioretention systems, which leach nutrients and negatively impact receiving water bodies, Silva Cell systems also provide nutrient removal.

Silva Cells can be used on almost any type of site, including streets, plazas, parking areas, green roofs/on-structure, and “Break-out” zones.

The Silva Cell is a rigorously engineered product that has undergone extensive FEA, lab, and field testing. With more than 3,000 installations around the world, we’ve seen every construction scenario out there.

Each Silva Cell installation is unique to existing site requirements. Costs will vary based on characteristics of the site, the quantity of product required, the tree size and stormwater treatment goals, and other design objectives.
