A series of tree beds connected with a continuous trench in order to provide increased rooting area and stormwater detention. This is a standard treatment that will be installed and maintained by the city.
See considerations for Tree Bed
- Installation of a tree-bed guard requires a permit from Parks
See application guidance for Tree Bed
See design guidance for Tree Bed
- The trench of connected tree beds should be left uncovered (and, optionally, landscaped) to improve tree root health
- Where pedestrian access is necessary (areas of high foot traffic, limited sidewalk space, or frequent curbside access), pavement can be bridged over the tree-bed trench using a suspended pavement system to increase soil volume
