TREEIB 
IS A REAL GAME CHANGER
IN URBAN TREE MANAGEMENT

The watering can safe large trees in cities. It can also generate many green jobs.

TREEIB  CREATES

®​​

GREEN, HEALTHY JOBS

IT PROVIDES

methodology and tools to mitigate climate change on established trees

IT GIVES

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

IT EXPLAINS

why improvement takes some time, and why trees should be watered with approx. 4-5 big irrigation dosages a year

IT ALLOWS

trees to mitigate climate change more efficiently

TREEIB  OFFERS THE ALGORITHM

®

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.

PREVENTIVE

CURATIVE

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. 

The problem: 

LARGE TREES IN URBAN AREAS FACE UNPRECEDENTED COMBINATIONS OF STRESS FACTORS

HEAT 

DROUGHT

Resulting in: 

LESS LEAVES 

NO GROWTH

BIOMASS LOSS

LESS RESISTANCE TO PESTS

THE STRESS MAKES TREES VULNERABLE

Everybody loves large trees! Many of the TREEIB, watering bag for mature trees.

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.

PRIMARY USE

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.

OTHER USES

  • 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.
