Correct tree irrigation is vital for the healthy growth of trees. By far the biggest contributor to the high mortality rates suffered by urban trees is drought stress. The water from efficient tree irrigation is required not only for all the biochemical processes involved in photosynthesis, respiration and transport, but also for mechanical support to leaf and stem tissue. Insufficient (or inefficient) tree watering will result in loss of leaf turgor and a consequent reduction in new shoot extension. Eventually this will lead to die-back and, if not remedied, the loss of the tree.
The RootRain aeration and irrigation product is an integrated component of the Citygreen urban tree system, providing essential water and oxygen exchange within the tree’s root zone. Available in a number of styles, the range consists of; RootRain Urban, Civic, Precinct and ArborVent.
