What is Conventional Tree Service Deep Root Watering? 
(temporary deep watering)

Many tree services offer deep root watering  as a fee for service and a giveaway as an incentive to use their tree trimming service. Simply put if no fertilizer is being used, then the deep root watering is simply  a process in which a large stainless steel spike ( about ½ inch in diameter) is plunged into the tree's root ball or dripline and a water solution is pressure pumped through the spike into the soil. Generally they will inject about 10-20 gallons per injection hole then pull out and repeat again every 3 to 4 feet around the dripline from the first injection hole.

  1. Process only last about 10 days before next deep root watering is needed 
  2. Cost of one deep root watering averages about ( 1/2 hour of time) plus solution  mix = $100 - $150 dollars per tree
  3. Uses unchlorinated water in tank mix, but you most likely may still use local home water with chlorine 
  4. Does not do any deep injection to pine trees ( probe only goes down up to 24 inches), not deep enough to handle pine trees 
  7. If it rains the tiny ½ inch diameter holes do nothing to pull in rainfall other than the ½ inch hole till it fills back up full of soil.


                    H2O SafeGuard Tree Program 

1.    Physically drill holes 3 inch diameter by 24 inches deep every 2 feet around dripline of tree 

2.    Fill Holes with a proprietary hollow sand mix ( material is hollow silica)
3.    Since it is sand in hole, installation is a permanent installation 
4.    Give a ten year warranty on sand in hole staying in place unless it gets dug out by underground electrical or plumbing or new plant installs 

5.    If tree is alive when service performed , will give a ten year warranty on tree not dying due to drought 
6.    Special Compost Tea ( full of beneficial microbes) is added to the soil after the holes are drilled to nurse the tree back to health 

7.    As soon as rainfall or irrigation hits the ground, it is immediately absorbed by the hollow sand and taken into the root system 

8.    Since the holes are 3 inches in diameter, rainfall and irrigation is easily absorbed into hole 

9.    When hollow sand is totally saturated, it acts like normal sand and lets the excess water percolate into a deeper soil layer 

10.A independent drip system can be installed around the tree dripline and it insures only non-chlorinated water is used to keep the tree watered and the soil biology thriving 

11.Can add more compost tea each month  direct to the tree dripline when the drip system is utilized 

12.Average cost per tree is between $350 to $500+ (depends on size of tree), but it averages 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of removal and disposal of the tree - economiclly it is far better to save the tree and save money!    

13.Hollow Sand when it absorbs water, pushes out the oxygen in the soil and as it releases the water from absorption of tree roots, it pulls oxygen back into itself……we have the ultimate favorable conditions for microbial activity to exist deep in the root zone ; it is like a living breathing column of sand when beneficial microbes are used in conjunction 

14.The SafeGuard Tree Program encourages roots to grow lower in the soil since water is always available and the tree does not need to search for it by coming to surface 

15.As we drill holes, we may cut some drip line root hairs or drinking roots. Within 3 days , new roots propagate and now are trained to use the fresh drilled hole as a straw to drink from and receive nutrition form the beneficial bacteria in the soil – we have basically trained the tree to drink from our hollow sand holes. 

16.Since water that touches the three inch diameter holes around the dripline is absorbed and immediately taken into the root zone, the normal volume it takes to water a tree (10 gallons per inch of caliper) is reduced dramatically by a minimum of 50% due to the rootzone being saturated in less than two minutes and letting any excess water percolate into lower soil layers. Thus, the water needs of the tree are greatly reduced and yet the tree is getting enough water to remain healthy.

                  PINE TREES and Trees with TAP ROOTS

1.The SafeGuard Tree Program also works on Pine Trees or any trees with tap roots – no other program addresses trees with tap roots 

2.Trees with tap roots we drill down a minimum of 4 feet to a maximum of ten feet to bypass the clay layer to get the moisture to the tap root

3. Tap Root Trees also use a drip system to feed water to the tree.
