The rubber covers that were installed at Barton are the non-biodegradable non-permeable type. Go there next time after a massive torrent rainstorm then peel up the rubber, and you'll see the bone-dryness.

If that's true, that's ridiculous. The city knows better. The new trees that were planted on York when it was redone a few years ago were all dying due to the metal grates, so the city has been going around, replanting, and opening up the base of the trees for water to easily flow and so the grates don't squeeze the trunks.
