TREEIB® CITY is the first and only solution that allows mature trees on sidewalks to be properly watered.

TREEIB® CITY is a large, heavy-duty watering bag designed especially for large and mature trees, with a maximum watering volume of 430 liters / 114 US gal of water.
It is designed in a rectangular shape; it is smaller than the TREEIB® 1500 and thus more convenient on sites where installation flexibility is needed. Although it is not a problem to use it on grassy surfaces, TREEIB® CITY is excellent when it comes to paving and other paved permeable surfaces.

  • SHAPE & PLACING

    TREEIB® CITY, a rectangle shape measuring 1,05 m x 2 m / 3,4 ft x 6,7 ft, is big enough to deliver a significant amount of irrigation liquid. Yet, it is small enough to water a tree ANYWHERE. Ensuring an easy and flexible placement on any site and the possibility to combine several bags on site is a winning combination for trees situated on sidewalks or supermarket parking lots.

    TREEIB® CITY releases water on paved surfaces!

    The water soaks through the surface completely; there is no evaporation or runoff, making this bag a game changer. We strongly recommend placing the bags on the canopy dripline or beyond it.

    DECONTAMINATION

    Soil decontamination is the exception to the rule regarding watering at the recommended irrigation zone.  

    ​When there is a high probability that the soil is contaminated with dog urine or road maintenance salt, there is only one way to decontaminate the soil - by soaking it with plenty of water. This is the specialty of TREEIB® CITY. By placing three bags in a U-shape or four bags placed in a square shape, close to the tree trunk, filled to the brim, they’ll ensure that the contaminants will percolate away from the root space.

    FILLING CYLINDER

    A 40cm-tall filling cylinder is joined to the bag opening (15 cm / 5,9 inch in diameter so that it can be filled with a fire hose) and is equipped with a side squeeze plastic clip with D rings. It helps to hold the water-source hose, and the cylinder makes it possible to fill the bag to maximum capacity, even on uneven surfaces or slopes.

    Water can be filled up to 20 cm below the top of the cylinder. When the bag is full, the cylinder is rolled up into position, the clip is fastened shut, and the D rings could be locked by a locking mechanism, e.g., a padlock with a shock alarm.

    FILLING

    The bag can be filled from a hydrant, a professional water tanker, a fire truck, or a garden hose. 

    ​The time it takes to fill depends on the output of the water source. While a professional water tanker can fill up TREEIB® CITY in two minutes, filling it with a 1/2” garden hose takes about 20 minutes. The clip on the filling cylinder is designed for this situation - Insert the garden hose as deeply as possible into the bag, fold down the cylinder, and fasten the clip. The hose will then be fixed into position, ensuring it can be left well alone until the bag is filled.

    ​The bag can also be filled with less than 430 liters of water; it will work perfectly like this. Just keep in mind that the water release time will be less.

    RELEASING WATER

    Water is released via 12 release openings, distributed evenly over the bottom area of the bag.​

    ​The time of the water release depends on the surface under the bag. The standard time for water release on paved surfaces is 20-22 hours, and the time on turf is 8-9 hours.

    ​The water release time can be shorter in places where the surface is rough or uneven (like crushed stone of a large diameter). The release time would typically be longer in areas with smoother surfaces, such as sawn stone paving with narrow joints.

    EYELETS

    TREEIB® City is designed as a flexible solution for places where it is impossible to place a classic TREEIB® 1500. These are expected to be places that are public and/or are also placed close to roads. These are locations where the bag must not be moved; there is a risk of being stolen or blown away by the wind on the street, which could cause an accident. Thus, the anchoring eyelets are welded at the edges as an optional safety component.

    They can be used for threading plastic, aramid, or steel rope, which can be locked around a tree trunk. It is also possible to use a clothesline with a steel core...

    Always use at least two openings at once to distribute any pressure.

    ​Take extra care to avoid damaging the trunk or surface roots. Make sure that the ends of the ropes are not sharp.
