Tree grates are vital because they help avoid soil compaction and prevent tree roots from becoming obstacles to pedestrians, thus creating more walking space. Jonite tree gratings are designed with the promotion of tree protection in mind, allowing rainwater to seep through while having narrow slits to prevent litter from falling through and smothering the soil. Some tree grates allow for expandability of inner diameter to accommodate the exponential growth of tree trunks during the maturity stage. Add inner rings when the trees are younger, and remove as the tree matures. Some of the Jonite tree gratings are certified ADA compliant. Making our tree grates accessible in hospitals, clinics, and public areas as wheelchair users have no issues navigating their way around the grills. Cast-iron tree grates may be prone to theft. Jonite reinforced stone tree grilles are theft-resistant because they do not pose any value for scrap due to their stone material integrity.

Using cast-iron or metal can cause surrounding temperatures to soar, which might not promote ideal growth in trees.Tree grille designs allow for fully customizable light ports or sockets for the installation of many different types of lighting for night illumination.
