Are Drip Lines Enough? Evaluating Their Efficiency and Impact on Plant Health

August 30, 2023
Sunny Crutchfield



In this informative video, ISA Certified Arborist Wes Rivers delves into the world of irrigation techniques, specifically focusing on drip line and bubbler systems for trees. The discussion highlights the strengths and weaknesses of drip line irrigation. Notably, drip systems excel at providing slow and efficient watering, allowing water to seep down and maximize utilization. However, limitations arise as the water only wets the area around the tree or drip line, struggling to penetrate the root ball effectively, which is a concern for nurturing new, non-established plants. Drip systems are better suited for existing plants in natural soil conditions. The conversation then shifts to bubbler systems, which release a substantial amount of water rapidly, ideal for adequately hydrating the root ball of newly planted trees that demand ample drainage. This stands in contrast to drip systems, which might not deliver water efficiently to the root ball without specific adjustments. The video concludes by emphasizing the bubbler’s superior ability to cater to this particular requirement.
