Using Silva Cells to grow large, healthy trees? The first step is setting your soil volume goals.
Soil Volume Target

Soil Volume Equals Tree Health

One of the primary obstacles facing urban trees is soil compaction, which is inhospitable for root growth. Silva Cells eliminate this challenge by providing support to the hardscapes above and allowing its void space to be filled with nutrient-rich, uncompacted soil — and the more the better. Research proves that nurturing trees to maturity is best achieved with a robust bank of soil.

Can Silva Cells be installed with existing trees? Yes! Click the link below to learn more.
