Our urban soil offers better drainage and increases the level of oxygen and water to the tree’s root system. The added organic matter provides necessary nutrients for the tree to prosper.
The major problem in establishing trees in paved urban areas is the lack of an adequate volume of soil for tree root growth. Subsequently, urban trees with most of their roots under pavement grow poorly and die prematurely. It is estimated that an urban tree in this type of setting lives for an average of only 7-10 years.
