Street trees in the urban environment provide important ecosystem services including stormwater management, reducing pollutant discharges and flooding by lessening surface runoff. Does the design of an urban tree pit affect its ability to absorb stormwater? If so, how? This study identifies key physical design features that affect the stormwater management performance of tree pits.
