Green-tech has announced the launch of a new product for the landscaping industry – the Tree Irrigator.
The innovative Tree Irrigator is a slow-release watering bag for trees with a diameter of between 3cm and 20cm. It works by delivering water to the root system which then reduces the effects of dehydration or transplant shock.
Green-tech is the UKs leading supplier of landscaping materials with an impressive 16,000 products in its latest product catalogue. They have vast warehousing facilities in North Yorkshire; from where they offer world-wide delivery.
The Tree Irrigator bag is an incredibly simple, yet clever concept. It easily zips around the tree trunk and the bag is just filled with water. For trees with a wider girth diameter (10cm plus) users zip two bags together in what is known as a double bag set up. A single Tree Irrigator bag holds approximately 60 litres of water which is gradually released over five to nine hours.
Green-tech’s Sales Director Richard Gill comments: “We are really excited by this product. It’s incredibly simple, easy to install and inexpensive. What is different to other irrigation systems is that this can be installed ‘after’ the tree has been planted. It can also be removed and then reused on other trees. Our other irrigation systems are all for use underground so, I’m pleased to be able to offer our customers an alternative option.”
The Tree Irrigator saves time, water, effort and trees! It is expected to prove popular and is ideal for new trees planted in either shade or in an urban environment. Installation and fill take just minutes with no tools required. The system is designed to promote deep root growth with deep water saturation every fill.
Richard continues, “This type of tree irrigation technology is widely used overseas so I’m delighted to be able to include it in our product portfolio as an option for landscape gardeners, contractors and foresters. It is perfect for newly planted or established trees which are up to 20cm in diameter. Its non-invasive design will not harm the existing landscape. I can see it being a popular alternative for some of our customers.”
