The CityGreen Story
MetroGreen, New Zealand distributor for Citygreen™ and our global network
Citygreen™ provides urban landscape solutions to many challenges affecting healthy urban trees in our towns and cities, starting with the provision of adequate, un-compacted soil able to provide nutrients for the tree as well as supporting pavements and roads.
Urban trees face a range of challenges brought about by the restricted and usually paved areas in which they must exist. In cities trees increasingly have to share above ground space with pedestrians and cars and below ground space with utilities of many kinds.
Challenges to healthy tree growth include compacted soil, lack of water and oxygen, excessive wind forces and damage from vehicles and vandals. Tree roots have to accommodate the close proximity of underground infrastructure and related excavations as well as pavements and roadways.
Citygreen™ offers a range of root guidance products that enable tree roots to be managed effectively, kept away from utilities, and protected during building works. Above and below ground solutions are available through Citygreen to provide tree support and protection. Our range of tree guards and grilles are both functional and aesthetic, enhancing the streetscape whatever its character. Deep watering and aeration systems ensure the provision of adequate water and oxygen at all times, while rainwater harvesting applications can save water, improve quality and support healthy tree growth at the same time.
