Each of these planters have options measuring at least 20 inches in width, perfect for making sure whatever tree you plant fits and has room to grow.

For those looking to add trees to a design and keep it low-maintenance, consider an extra large self-watering planter.
Self-watering planters divide water and the plant’s roots with a separator. This separator forms a reservoir that can be filled with water as needed. As the tree needs moisture, water is drawn from the reservoir to the plant’s roots through a water-wicking system.
An extra large self watering planter can help to mimic outdoor conditions in an indoor environment, and help with overall tree maintenance.
Place a series of planters together with different tree species to create an intriguing display. Or simply use a tree with a commanding presence to make a statement.
Though there can definitely be challenges adding trees to a space, they can certainly make a big impact on a design.
