Trees are forest plants. As soon as we overlook this simple fact we are likely to make mistakes when planting in town and city environments. We cannot perfectly recreate the conditions trees enjoy in woodlands but we can go a huge distance in improving their chances of thriving in challenging conditions by tree literate design.
The key to success above ground, is investing below ground; an investment which is out of sight but quickly evident above ground for many decades and potentially even centuries.
At GreenBlue Urban, our heritage is in our urban forest – but our expertise in urban greening extends beyond just trees – encompassing green walls, rain gardens and assisting with the design of healthier, greener urban spaces with our innovative solutions.
