Have you heard of a tree diaper? It releases the water slowly to keep the soil wet longer creating better absorption. Here is Urban Forester David Neville filling one up on Centre Street.

Tree diapers are great but they must be refilled with water or removed when empty. A tree died in our neighborhood because the diaper was never removed and provided a breeding ground for insects – leading to the death of the tree. Once the tree has a good start – take the diaper off!
