Watering Methods

In this insightful video, ISA Certified Arborist Wes Rivers explores the nuances of tree watering methods through a discussion on the advantages and limitations of drip line and bubbler systems. Wes breaks down the strengths of drip line irrigation, highlighting its gradual and efficient water delivery that allows for optimal water percolation and utilization. However, Wes also shed light on its weaknesses to the watering methods, such as limited coverage that mainly wets the area around the drip line, posing challenges for watering newly planted trees with shallow root balls.

In contrast, the conversation delves into the bubbler irrigation technique, emphasizing its ability to provide a substantial amount of water quickly. This makes it an excellent choice for effectively watering new trees with root balls that require ample hydration, especially in soils with rapid drainage. Unlike the slower distribution of water in drip line systems, bubblers excel at precisely targeting the root ball, offering a more direct and immediate solution for the irrigation needs of young trees.
