Deeproot Canada


DeepRoot products are high-quality tree care and stormwater management tools to promote ecological function in urban areas. With nearly 40 years of experience, we continue to develop products that satisfy the needs of both the natural and the built environment, and we have thousands of trees worldwide as living proof. Our products are manufactured in the USA in ISO 9002 certified factories and made using post-consumer recycled materials wherever possible. Our products include Silva Cell, Root Barrier, Geomembranes (Water Barrier/Bamboo Barrier), and ArborTie staking and guying material.
