StratavaultTM system employs advanced design geometry and reinforced copolymers to produce an incredibly robust, skeletal matrix providing optimal growth zone for tree roots. In this green loving city, encouraging healthy tree growth is important in keeping our urban experience pleasant and safe.

This matrix has been tested by Finite Element Analysis, as well as physical Ultimate Load tests at university. These test results have been verified by consulting engineers to provide adequate support for pavement loads.

The event held at Cathay Green on 25 and 26 July, invited 60 competitors from seven Asia Pacific countries to demonstrate and exchange the latest innovations in climbing techniques and equipment, as well as safe work practices.

The “Young Arborist” activity operated by the Singapore Arboriculture Society allowed youths from 3 to 16 years old to appreciate the occupation of an arborist. They demonstrated agility and bravery by climbing a tree under the supervision of professionals.
