Gravel Bed Stormwater Retention System - Greenhouse Demonstration Project

This project was conducted to better understand below-ground tree root morphology in gravel-based stormwater retention systems.

To better understand below-ground processes of tree roots growing in gravel-based stormwater detention systems, a greenhouse demonstration was developed. This project is designed to simulate various scenarios that trees may encounter in larger stormwater retention gravel beds in or adjacent to parking lots. The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the project including methods, proposed/expected outcomes of root morphology over a growing season, and actual results of root growth.
