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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wabbit 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by treeowner 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by beanball Simple to use and efficient water usage.
Light weight and easy to use. Since this item encircles the truck of the tree, it is important to match the size of the treegator to the tree size. The treegator has a zipper to close it around the trunk of the tree. I plan to use it with trees whose trunk diameters may exceed that of the treegator. It can be used with larger diameter trees. Fill it; then, let the treegator water your tree or bush. It is easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Treefreak Perfect for the job.
After last summer, even with regular watering, our Red Oak's, all five of them refused to completely bud out. We had an arborist come in to examine them, he said they were overstressed from last year and didn't get substantial enough water over the Fall and Winter and suggested a massive watering program with tree bags and deep watering by injection. It took a month but finally the trees look great. Great product for watering without waste.
