will this work on older trees or just new trees?

Asked by: puna
Actually works great for established trees, depending on the Trunk size. Especially where watering in a problem or restricted.

Can this be utilized after the tree is in place or does it have to be applied at time of planting?

The treegator has a zipper so it can be installed after planting.

TreeGator 20 Gal. Tree Watering System is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good product but came damaged I have used these in the past and think they are terrific. Unfortunately, this last one I ordered had a slice in it which appeared as soon as I filled it up. Normally it's a terrific product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing for japanese maples in summer! In California's drought and summer heat my Japanese maples were taking quite a scorching despite bubbler irrigation. These tree bags water more evenly and more deeply than the in-ground irrigation I have, and they waste MUCH less water. I no longer use the bubblers in summer. I can water the trees every 5 days or so and they are starting to sprout new leaves where I thought the sun scorch had ruined them. The bags naturally lift up off the soil when empty to allow oxygen to the rootball soil. And they're light enough that a slight breeze easily swishes under them for the same purpose. They're also great for areas that you do not have irrigation, just make sure you have 2 feet of clearance between the ground and your first set of branches! For a smaller tree or one with height-clearance issues, I suggest a Tree I.V system (deep watering spike connected to a 5 gallon bucket) rather than the donut shaped watering bag that cuts off oxygen supply to the rootball. If your tree is bigger than 4" in diameter, you can zip together 2 watering bags to make an expanded bag. Just remember to fill both halves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Tree Gators!. This is the second time to purchase the Tree gators and with local watering restrictions they are a life saver. These tree bags make watering easy and hold enough water he help in the hot summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient way to deeply water newly-planted trees. I ordered three of these. Had I realized they are designed to drain in 4-5 hours, I would have ordered only one and rotated it from tree to tree. In reality, the first time I filled these only one drained as designed, the other two took closer to two days. The second time they were filled, two drained as designed, with one still taking two days. The third fill will happen tonight, so I hope all three will perform as designed.
