Bangor Public Realm Tree Planting

~ Thursday, 11th August 2011

As part of our role as framework arboriculturists for this European Union-funded project, we have recently begun the detailed planning and design for substantial new tree planting in Bangor, Gwynedd.

The project will involve the design and specification of planting pits and a bespoke planting media.  The design will require the use of below-ground cellular root containment systems to provide adequate root volume, and will be designed to complement the Sustainable Urban Drainage Solutions (SUDS) for the scheme by diverting rainwater into the pits to provide passive irrigation, while attenuating peak runoff.

Details of the scheme will be posted in coming month on the fairleyarb site and at www.gwynedd.gov.uk/gwy_doc.asp
