Huge plus to trees wrote

Planted 7 maple trees in beginning of July, knew this was probably a bad idea but I purchased 7 of these and wow what a difference my trees never shocked or even wilted, and we’ve had some extremely dry weather for a month straight, worth every penny!

Love these!! Sturdy, well made, excellent quality, watering bags. Just fill 'em and go about your business!! (as long as you have a water source near by or a mobile water tank for fill ups, they should not be moved once filled).

Water more with less wrote

I live in the Texas "hill country" where in the past few years water has been an issue due to a lingering drought. As I've planted new trees I've added the gators out of convenience and necessity. Less time has to be spent watering and there is no waste. They are so simple to use and a good example of this is letting my 11 year old grandson do the watering this past weekend.

Treegators--Great for street trees! wrote

Treegators are the best! As a Borough Tree Commission, we started using treegators last year on our newly-planted street trees. The treegators helped us to save time on watering and they enabled us to get enough water right to the root system and water deeply which is important for young trees. They are very easy to use.

I wanted to plant some expensive oak and maple 2-inch caliper trees at my weekend place 14 miles from town. It was a challenge to be able to water the trees daily as needed. The TREEGATOR system allowed me to plant these trees with a good probability of success. Thanks for the prompt and courteous response. I will be a repeat customer. Paul B., Dalton, Georgia
