Trees on the move Streetlife has gained extensive experience in professional tree planters and Treetec® care systems over many years of close partnership with leading tree specialists. The new Nordic version is available for very cold climates. Our contemporary and innovative solutions continue the centuries-old tradition of the Orangery and Hortus Botanicus in terms of both aesthetics and techniques. The optimum care and nurture of the trees are the central elements of this development. Arguments to place trees in tree tubs are: • Shortage of sufficient underground space, as is the case with underground car parks, roof gardens, underground services, and high groundwater levels. • It is an interesting and sympathetic way of structuring and designing urban space. • It allows a great degree of flexible and multifunctional use. Movable large trees do not require tree-felling permission. • For safety reasons, important buildings can be equipped with a tree tub variant of a roadblock (Page 29B). Streetlife’s new Collection includes various tree planters and other solutions for combining sustainable greenery and recreation; Green Benches are one such option. Ultra-lightweight tree planters – with or without seating options and/or sustainable decking materials – provide architects with numerous options for creating green roof terraces. Existing trees in an urban environment also deserve more attention. CorTen tree grids, tree guards and tree and growing space protectors complete Streetlife’s full and coherent range of products.

Our ultimate example is the pomegranate tree at Slot Herrenhausen in Hanover. This plant came to North Germany from Venice in 1653, and has survived the turbulent history of this region right down to the present. This tree is in perfect health thanks to 350 years of optimal care and attention.

On the Place Darcy in Dijon (FR), an arboretum has been created with 55 trees in 55 sustainable Giant Flowerpots with natural fibres by Streetlife. The square has been designed by the French landscape architect Alfred Peter. The tree planters have an underground watering system.

Roadblock Tree Planters These days, increasingly strict requirements are applied to protect strategic (government) buildings. The complete safe shielding of buildings, preventing ram raids and attacks, is accorded high priority. However, anti-ram barriers often appear incompatible with the prestige of a building or with a pleasing architectural style that conveys accessibility. Extra heavy-duty steel tree planters with additional ground level anchoring/foundation form budgetfriendly elements that can serve as anti-ram roadblocks. With proper integration of the tree planters, friendly-looking accessibility can be combined with optimal safety. Streetlife has experience with modified tree planters and impact tests according to the British Standard PAS 68 (2013).

Ultra Light Tubs These Ultra Light Tubs are made of partly recycled Aluminium Composite plate material. In combination with a lightweight substratum, the lightweight shrub and tree tubs are extremely suitable for roofs. Ultra Light Tubs can be placed directly onto deck patio surfaces. An even load of 500 to 600 kg/m² is feasible with these tubs. Streetlife advises the application of the optional Treetec® Bottom Up system in the tubs. The capillary columns

Air Tubs Air Tubs can be used to create low-maintenance, recreational roof gardens and terraces. They are extremely lightweight and their unique, patented wall construction allows more oxygen into the planter to circulate around the roots. Tree planters are available in various sizes and three heights. By positioning Air Tubs at deck patio level, it is possible to integrate seating and shrubbery simply and effectively. Their height above ground level is then between 50 and 55 cm. Their availability in three height sizes and two plinth heights make them ideal for inclusion in the ground level system that is often used for architectural terraces and roof gardens. Available in plain aluminium or RAL coating. Air Tubs are available

Circular Tree Isles The Circular Tree Isles have a diameter of 3, 4 or 5 metres. The tree isles consist of CorTen steel sections with a Rough&Ready sitting edge of FSC-100% hardwood (beams 7x15 cm). The beams are positioned radially, offering a natural anti-skate solution. The unique tree isles are completely stand-alone on the concrete deck or are embedded in the ground. Large trees can be anchored underground by a specially developed foundation construction. The construction does not require separate foundation. The depth below ground level depends on the particular project in question and is determined by the height of the ground level construction. The standard depth is 15 cm.

Oval Tree Isles Large public spaces require proportionally larger tree isles. Oval Tree Isles measure a minimum of 9 m in length and approximately 4 m in width. An outer radius of at least 3 m is required to install border seating along the short ends of an isle. R&R beams are positioned radially to prevent skateboarders from skating along seat edges. CorTen steel structures do not require their own foundation – standard depth below ground level is 15 cm. A cambered fill allows trees with larger root balls to be planted. Larger trees should be securely anchored using a special-purpose sub-soil support system. Tree isles can be aesthetically

Composite SMC Tree Isles The Composite SMC Tree Isles have a more modern and architectonic character. They are ideal for inner courtyards and roof gardens. Lightly curved SMC Composite seats have been integrated in the metal rims. This compressed material is vandal-proof and pleasant to sit on due to its insulating properties. It has a very long lifespan and requires no maintenance. The dimensions of a double seat are approx. 114 x 36 cm. The edges are made of coated steel plate or of a blank aluminium compound in order to reduce the weight (for roof gardens).

CorTen is a steel alloy with added chromium, copper and nickel on which, after having been exposed to the elements for about six months, a dense, water and air-tight patina of rust will appear, which will prevent the steel from rusting any further. Streetlife supplies various products in CorTen steel. Apart from its warm charisma, CorTen steel has a number of advantages: it is environment-friendly, graffiti and sticker-resistant, shows an attractive fading effect from orange to brown and due to its natural oxidation, any repairs or alterations to a CorTen steel structure will become invisible in time.

Tree Air速 Spot Streetlife now supplies a unique recessed spotlight incorporating the Tree Air速 root aeration system (patent pending) that can be combined simply and effectively with CorTen steel tree grids and large tree planters. Heat generated by the spotlight establishes an additional airflow into the aeration channels if the channel is left open along one side. This system does away with the need for separate air grilles resulting in a neat and tidy finish.
