Tree experts agree that slow-release watering systems are the best way to effectively and efficiently irrigate a newly planted tree or shrub. The Ooze Tube provides just that.
This watering system was designed and field tested by a certified arborist, complete with an adjustable drip gauge that allows you to control the amount of water your tree or shrub receives. The 15-gallon reserve can last anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks.
Each watering system includes one Ooze Tube, one drip emitter and one wooden stake. Instructions are printed on the tube.

Each tree and plant is guaranteed to grow, or we'll replace it within one year of shipment.
Our trees are delivered with natural bare roots which have been dipped in hydrating gel prior to shipment to keep the roots moist and healthy. As their abundant, fibrous roots aren't confined by a container, bare-root trees get off to a more vigorous start compared to containerized roots which typically need more time to adjust to transplanting. Bare-root trees typically surpass the size of larger containerized trees in only a few years.
Natural root (also called bare root) trees are shipped without soil around their roots. They are shipped when dormant in the spring and fall seasons. We dip the roots in a hydrating gel to keep them moist during shipping.
There are a number of advantages to natural root trees:
The Urban Horticulture Institute at Cornell University has an interesting article about the benefits of planting natural root trees. Look for the PDF entitled Creating the Urban Forest: The Bare Root Method
Potted (also called containerized) trees come in 4" containers.
