About this event

We are often asked what is RootSpace and how did it come to market.

Unsurprising, it starts with trees. It is difficult to imagine life without them, they are also complex organisms, interacting with their surroundings in many ways – the living lungs of the planet.

This story (of soil cells) is 20 years young and during this presentation we will share the experiences, the exciting moments, the breakthrough events which led to the creation of the most advanced urban tree pit system available.

Learning outcomes:

  • Look at the forest floor environment which is where trees do best – healthy uncompacted soil. Compared to the built environment where they are most needed for shade, water management, air quality and so many other ecosystem benefits.
  • Head back to 1992 when formally known as Greenleaf, to the present day as innovation continues. Hear an interview with our founder who experienced frustration with high mortality rates of newly planted trees, who then developed products to aide irrigation and root management to enable tree establishment.
  • Look back at successful case studies, with extracts from clients and designers from across the globe.
