Granite Tree Planters


Tree planters are large-format planting containers, which allow specimen trees to be positioned as key features in streetscapes, city centres and commercial built landscapes.

The manufacture of these large granite planters planters is to-order and to your specification, and we do not hold in stock a standard range of shapes and sizes. 

IOTA’s granite tree planters are ideal for public realm – being stylish, robust, heavy, and often cheaper than more utilitarian alternatives in concrete or metal. Compared with IOTA’s granite street & park planters, the tree planters are more robustly constructed and reinforced; and typical optional design extras include lifting eyebolts in the base to assist installation, and attachment points for tree anchoring systems.

The granite stone used by IOTA is selected specifically for use in public realm schemes. The stone is highly resistant to physical attack, graffiti is easily removed, and its close granular structure means that minor damage is not readily apparent.

The planters are made from 25mm thick cut sections of quarried granite, with a finely speckled charcoal grey colour and a polished mid-sheen surface as standard (other surface finishes, such as honed, picked or flamed, are also available). The granite sections are bonded with specialist stone resins, and all joints are internally reinforced; and the tree planters are coated internally with a polyurethane resin sealer to prevent water ingress. The final standard of finish is exceptionally high, with near-invisible mitred corners, and smoothed and chamfered edges.
