Tree pit systems integrate common street trees with stormwater management as a viable and sustainable alternative to traditional "end of pipe" practices in achieving volume control and nutrient reduction. Tree pit systems are well suited for residential, and commercial construction; parking lots; sidewalks and streetscapes; plazas, and; retrofit situations where stormwater conveyance is inefficient or ineffective due to aged or faulty infrastructure. Careful and deliberate consideration in formulating and engineering the media that comprises the tree root space must take into account the geology of existing native soils, water table, utilities, building foundations, etc.
