Sheffield Tree Pits

Trailflex Permeable Paving in Sheffield


On a walk around any large town or city you will unfortunately come across newly planted trees which are dying. This is due to the tree being unable to access air and water, the two most fundamental elements they need to flourish. Trees are perhaps more valued in an urban landscape than any other. It is imperative that we both replace diseased trees and protect our existing trees.

We have recently teamed up with Sheffield Council and Amey to replace the sunken tree pits in and around Sheffield. Many of the old tree pits were breaking and sinking causing weed growth and trip hazards. Amey contacted Langford Direct to rip out the old surface and replace it with Trailflex.
