Aeration tubes promote easier air and gas exchange to the root system of the tree, which promotes healthier root development.
The aeration tubes allow for active convection to take place. This means at nighttime when the temperatures drop, since cooler air is heavier, the aeration tubes convection cap is pulling the cool air down and then forcing the warmer out. This active exchange of oxygen is critical to the tree’s root zone.
They conserve water by allowing direct watering to the roots, eliminating runoff caused by conventional irrigation or sprinklers. These tubes also collect natural rain and any runoff from storms directing it directly into the tubes down to the root zone.
The aeration tubes can be installed when planting new trees, they help reduce shock and stress caused by the transplanting. They also help establish the trees zone quicker and will help promote deeper root growth.
They can also be installed in areas with limited soft scape – like patios with interlock.
