Newly planted or transplanted trees with reduced root systems need frequent deep irrigation. Deep watering to a depth of 12" or more keeps moisture at root level, attracting roots downward for better root anchorage. The best way to guarantee deep watering is to slowly and evenly apply a high volume of water in a single application. Light watering applications will not provide adequate water saturation, much of the water is lost due to run-off or evaporation, and will force roots to the surface, leading to shallow root systems.

Treegator ensures deep water saturation with every application, with 100% of water being absorbed with no run-off. Two water-release points per bag ensure even watering, and each bag empties within 5-9 hours. The Treegator is quick and easy to set-up and refill, saving you time, money, water, and effort. They are ideal for new shade or street trees, and are typically used during the initial 1-2 growing seasons after planting. Trees with trunk diameters of 1 to 3 inches can use a single bag, while trees with 4 to 8 inch trunk diameter should use a double-bag set-up.
