Central Parade, Mt Maunganui

Citygreen Structural Root Cells were utilized in the upgrade of the Central Parade Shopping Centre at Mt Maunganui, Bay of Plenty in mid 2010.

New Zealand native 'Pohutukawa' Trees were planted next to the carriageway and where structural strength was required, Citygreen Root Cells were used to provide these magnificent native trees the needed protection and optimum growing conditions. Paving and curbs are also protected from potentially damaging roots. Arboresin, a porous tree pit surface was laid on top of the tree pit and crushed Waitaha Stone from the South Island's West Coast of New Zealand was added to the Arboresin to create a stunning surface - no loose stones while still permeable!

In December 2013 we visited this site again to find amazing growth during the 3 year period. The Pohutukawa is not a fast growing tree however the growth here has certainly surprised us even with the drought conditions experienced in the 2012 summer season. While 2013 has been a poor flowering year for Pohutukawas due to climate conditions, there has been no drop-off in continued growth.
