The Arbortech Root Drencher:

  • Guarantees application of water to exactly where it is needed – the root ball.
  • Is a fraction of the cost of limited capacity underground irrigation systems and can cut tree watering time and cost by up to 60%.
  • Root Drencher demonstrates to the public a commitment to effective tree welfare
  • One simple 30 second visit by tree watering personnel is all that is needed to ensure the application of 18-20 Litres of water directly to the root ball over a 1 to 2 hour period.
Please see the Hampton Court Palace project which utilised 500 Root Drencher units with 100% tree survival.

Root Drencher should ideally be installed at the time of tree planting.

2 years on and photographed in September 08, this planting in Hackney has flourished with the tree putting on 100% girth growth (the tree restraint can now be removed).The watering period during drought periods is one application of 30 litres every 10 days to 2 weeks. This is achieved by simply filling the Arbotech Root Drencher to overflowing and then moving to the next tree.

Simply open up the unit from it’s flat pack form and close off the base by folding the tabs over.
Before completely filling in the tree planting pit rest the Root Drencher firmly in contact with the top of the tree root ball with the back of the unit resting against the tree support post.
When used as part of the Arbortech system, the Arbortech Tree Restraint distances the Root Ball from the support post, Root Drencher can then be positioned between the post and the tree
Before closing off the top of the Root Drencher drop a couple of shovels of soil into the unit to help facilitate a
partial water seal at the base, (at this time a handful of slow release fertilizer can be introduced if required).
Close the top of the unit off and secure to the fixing post using a single screw or nail, (see illustration opposite). Ensure that the Root
Drencher base remains in firm contact with the top of the root ball.
Finish filling in the tree planting pit thus partially burying the Root Drencher base.
