Rubberway Tree Wells are a beautiful, economical, and environmentally friendly tree surround option.
Rubber tree wells are porous and create a healthy environment for the tree and its roots by allowing air, water, and nutrients to reach the tree roots below ground. They are uniquely designed to protect tree roots and encourage deep rooting thereby reducing the risk of trip hazards from root heave and sidewalk cracking.
Less costly than metal tree grates, Rubberway's porous rubber tree wells come with a number of additional benefits such as flexibility and reduced maintenance time and costs. The flexibility of Rubberway allows it to flex rather than crack with tree growth, and as the tree grows and the base expands, the rubber tree well can be trimmed back to allow for further tree growth.
Rubberway's rubber tree wells are mixed on site, then poured in place and hand troweled. Both a single layer and a dual layer system are available as well as additional custom design options.
Single layer rubber tree wells are made from 100% post-consumer recycled rubber from tires that are free of lead and heavy metals. The recycled rubber granules are encapsulated in a non-toxic color pigment and are available in a variety of colors. These large rubber granules are mixed with our high-quality binder and poured in place to form an open grid, rapid draining tree surround.
Dual layer rubber tree wells consist of a base layer made from 100% post-consumer recycled rubber from tires that are free of lead and heavy metals, topped with a 1/2" wear (top) layer of virgin rubber that is colored throughout. This solid color wear layer ensures a long-lasting, color fast surface that won't wear off over time.
This dual layer rubber tree well system utilizes smaller rubber granules than the single layer system resulting in a look more similar to concrete. A large variety of color options are available. Colors can also be blended together and unique designs can be incorporated.
