Tree Care

Tree Care

If it has been determined that the tree needs some water, we suggest the following methods:

  • Place a garden hose about 12" or so from the trunk of the tree.
  • Adjust the water flow until it is trickling the size of a pencil or pen.
  • Let the water run for 30-45 minutes (for very large trees, do this on both sides of the tree).

Always remember:

  • Take into account how much Mother Nature has provided, but never count on her to provide enough.
  • In-ground irrigation systems are nice, but are usually geared to turf, which has different water requirements.
  • And finally, it can take 2-3 seasons for a newly planted tree to become established. Until then, it will need your help.

Horta-Sorb® water management gel polymers are substances that absorb hundreds of times their weight in water. The water absorbed is nearly all available to the plants. Their use results in managing watering in the root zone of the plant significantly reducing watering maintenance and providing for a more constant supply of water to the roots. Horta-Sorb® polymers have been used in many areas in horticulture and agriculture for nearly two decades now. Initially accepted as a bare root dip in forestry their use quickly spread to landscape, greenhouse and nursery, and numerous agricultural markets. Horta-Sorb® use ranges from bare root gels to hydromulching, transplant amendments to “ice packs” for cut flower and fresh fish shipments. Horta-Sorb® superabsorbents are the highest quality gel available today and are available in three particle sizes Horta-Sorb® LG (2.0mm to 4.0mm), Horta-Sorb® MD (1.0mm to 2mm), and Horta-Sorb® SM (0.3mm to 0.8mm), each for a particular job and to improve safety and handling.
