WHAT WE DO
We provide green infrastructure solutions for the “built environment” by combining plant systems with stormwater runoff reduction and pollutant removal. Our systems serve the dual function of providing healthy and thriving trees, coupled with stormwater management.
Give us 3 minutes and you’ll see what we do.
StormTree believes that healthy trees and stormwater management can coexist, starting from the roots up. We also strongly believe that you can’t grow a tree in a closed box.
We provide green infrastructure solutions for the “built environment” by combining plant systems with stormwater runoff reduction and pollutant removal. Our systems perform (serve) the dual function of providing healthy and thriving trees, coupled with stormwater management. StormTree has a diverse assortment of sustainable options for land use development projects in the urban landscape. StormTree’s unique open design systems allow for unrestricted tree root growth, while suspending pavement naturally without structural supports.
In 2010, StormTree® was launched and inspired by recognizing a need for a cost-effective alternative to tree box and modular plant systems. Formed on the principal of “Thinking Outside of the Concrete Box™,” we introduced our flagship open bottomed/open sided tree filter system with interior sump or attached catch basin for ease of maintenance—no more changing costly filter cartridges and soil. Unlike conventional closed sided tree “boxes”, our systems were designed by prioritizing healthy tree growth, while still providing pollutant removal to satisfy regulatory requirements.
In 2017, we introduced DrainGarden™, the “urban raingarden”. A low and narrow profile shrub planter system for sites where space is a premium. A unique plant “socket” design and stone mulch base provides for a virtually weed-free stormwater management system.
In 2018, we introduced “StreetRoots™” our urban tree pit system for growing healthy and mature tree communities in the urban landscape. A low-cost alternative to underground structural support systems -- suspending pavements naturally.
By 2019, with over 1,000 systems in the ground, working coast to coast in the U.S. and Canada, StormTree® was proud to boast the largest array of sustainable plant systems for the built environment.
Today, StormTree® continues to innovate by servicing both the engineering and landscape architecture communities with pragmatically designed and engineered plant systems.
