Monitoring for tree pits

In built-up areas like city centers, roads, roofs, walls, and planters, it’s not natural for plants and trees to thrive. Trees are critical for their beneficial effects on microclimates, and ecosystem services. To ensure their well-being, the right conditions must be created and closely monitored.

That’s why our sensors have been applied in urban tree management. Measure moisture levels within the root ball, and at different levels around the pit grate, for both a vertical and horizontal profile indication of soil moisture, and water availability. This helps determine the functionality of the tree pit, water saturation rate, and provide optimal irrigation insights.
