methodology and tools to mitigate climate change on established trees
us a chance, to significantly increase the life span of large trees; leaving them in a better condition, with more vitality, and within reasonable financial terms
why improvement takes some time, and why trees should be watered with approx. 4-5 big irrigation dosages a year
trees to mitigate climate change more efficiently
Bayerische Landesanstalt für Weinbau und Gartenbau (LWG)
Middle-aged and old trees have a high value in the fight against climate change, and every one of us must put in a lot more effort to save them.
Watering with the TREEIB® system could be an important step in achieving this aim.
Cofounder of the Native Tree Society
To match the same amount of carbon stored in one felled large northern red oak we have to plant app. 48 061 oaks of standard size.
We can’t plant our way out of the climate crisis.
The Chief of the Urban Forestry, City of Prague III
When we discovered the possibility of watering the mature trees with TREEIB® bags, we were excited and purchased the bags.
By watering with TREEIB® bags, we are able to help the trees through stressful periods.
TREEIB OFFERS THE TOOLKIT
TREEIB® offers everyone, who cares for large trees, an algorithm on how to get involved with protecting the trees. It will provide an information packet, containing evidence, data and arguments in favour of the mature trees. Mature trees are an important phenomena in urban areas, and it is our responsibility to present this information to the decision makers. We must make it possible, to save our historic tree heritage for future generations.
BASED ON THE SCIENCE
We carried out an extensive review of all theoretical literature, and we talked to many field-related science experts. Even though we have tested the TREEIB® method for three years, and we know that we don’t know everything; with our, as of present, positive results (*), we can say we have a chance to reduce the decline of large trees in urbanized landscapes.
(*) Up to now, proven in temperate continental climate Dfb according to Köppen climate classification
SURPRISINGLY POSITIVE RESULTS
Although it is known that tree decline is caused by a number of factors, it is surprising how many positive results have been documented, just because of proper watering technique.
TREEIB® is a completely non invasive measure and a flexible solution. Because the watering is done only few times a year, the number of TREEIB® irrigation bags needed for a city to cover its mature tree population, is much smaller, than the number of bags needed for newly planted trees.
TREEIB® should be used as a preventive, as well as a cure measure, against the negative consequences resulting from various stress factors that affect trees.
LARGE TREES IN URBAN AREAS FACE UNPRECEDENTED COMBINATIONS OF STRESS FACTORS

LESS RESISTANCE TO PESTS
and many more.
Large trees are on the decline, and they are disappearing from our environment...
THE STRESS MAKES TREES VULNERABLE
...and the newly planted trees are incapable of performing to the same extent, in such a short time.

Support and save mature, large and veteran trees through proper and effective irrigation techniques.
What is the purpose of TREEIB
TREEIB® bags are designed to irrigate slowly, with the right amount of water, at the right distance from the tree trunk, where the feeding (fine) roots are. This is on the canopy dripline and beyond. The irrigation dosage is aimed to be supportive. The bags are not designed to be a substitute for all the water needs of the tree, because it would be counterproductive for the stability of the tree and its longevity.
The product helps generate leaves and biomass quickly, which is important in these times of climate change.
TREEIB® is to be used as irrigation for mature trees, to help them adapt to the signs of climate change, which are mainly drought and heat waves. A four-dosage per year irrigation cycle is suggested, to achieve a stabilization effect on the trees.
Increasing tree resistance to pests and diseases
Desalinization of soil in the root area after winter street care
Care of street trees with small space for rooting
Supporting trees in parking lots
Private citizens potentially would be able to borrow bags from their municipalities, to water their own trees. This would reduce the costs for councils, as well as individuals.
Tree protection on construction sites
Overcoming transplant shock in large trees
Enriching soil, through liquid fertilizers or stimulants to encourage rooting
What is the tree age range, this bag is designed for?
Our irrigation bags are designed for trees ranging from 5 to 10,000 years of age. It is for every and any tree, that has feeding roots more than a meter from the tree trunk. We place a special emphasis on urban trees, either in parks or streets.
TREEIB CAN BE USED
ON VARIOUS SURFACES
EVEN ON SLOPES!
TREEIB IS PERFECTLY SAFE
FOR BOTH THE TREE AND THE INVESTOR
We set safety as our priority. We designed it so that it doesn't damage the trees, and has safety features to prevent it from being stolen.
