Greenery architects and city authorities realize how much good green can do in the city. On a daily basis, however, they find out that trees are sensitive and vulnerable to threats, incl. drought, which poses a risk of losing large expenditures on the creation, maintenance and care of the good condition of trees. Planting trees in a traditional way - directly next to roads or sidewalks without any additional solutions causes the trees to grow with difficulty, die or their roots grow upwards causing damage to the surface, e.g. bulging or cracking.
So how do the Wavin Q-Bic Plus tree tanks work? In the place where the tree will be planted, an empty space is dug, in which plastic retention and drainage boxes are then placed. The tree should be planted in the centre, anchored and the rest of the space filled with a special substrate. In addition to the ground, water and air are also crucial for the growth of a tree. They are delivered to the roots by spreading drainage pipes. The tank structure is limited by permeable outer walls on all sides, providing a protective structure for the tree's soil volume. The side walls have a dual function - on the one hand, they ensure no contact between the surrounding soil and the ground, on the other hand, they serve as a retaining wall between compacted and non-compacted soil, which allows the soil to be compacted around the tank in accordance with applicable standards.
The structure of the tank ensures complete resistance to movement and soil above the tank, and the substrate inside the tank remains uncompressed. This creates not only an ideal environment for the tree to grow, but a solution to ensure that the surface around the tree stays in good condition without bulging or cracking due to the roots. The tanks can also be quickly installed and dismantled. If, for example, at a later stage it is necessary to lay cables or pipes in the ground, the tree container can be easily excavated and opened. This creates not only an ideal environment for the tree to grow, but a solution to ensure that the surface around the tree stays in good condition without bulging or cracking due to the roots.
Wavin Q-Bic Plus tanks for trees enable the planting and growth of trees in areas where it would not normally be possible, e.g. in areas with a large number of paved surfaces or in areas with a substrate that prevents the natural development of trees.
