Tree watering bags are an efficient way to water trees. They work with storage drip irrigation. The bags are quickly filled and then release the water drop by drop over several hours. As a result, trees are watered efficiently because the water can seep into the deeper layers. And at the same time, time and water are saved. In addition, the bags make tree watering calculable. Here you will find detailed information on why using tree watering bags is worthwhile.

Here the 12 most important criteria for purchasing tree watering bags:

  • Price is an important criterion when purchasing tree watering bags. Especially for cities and municipalities that use public money and for companies. Even more important than the price is the price-performance ratio. It is therefore worth taking a closer look at the other points.
  • Weight. An important indicator of the quality of irrigation bags is their weight. Weight is directly related to material density. A bag with a higher material density is generally more robust and therefore more durable. The 75 liter baumbad bag made of PVC weighs 680 grams, which corresponds to a weight of 400 grams per m2. Due to this high material density, the baumbad is one of the heaviest and most robust bags on the market.
  • Material. It is important to use a durable and long-lasting material. On hot days, bags that collapse as soon as they are empty are an advantage. If the bags are left upright for many hours or days, heat build-up can occur on hot days, which can damage the tissue of the trunk. The standard tree bath bags are made from a robust and relatively soft PVC. Baumbad also has PE bags in its range that stay upright.
  • Volume. Another important question is what volume of water you want to work with. As a rule, larger volumes are more practical because more water can be dispensed in one watering cycle. Baumbad offers 75 liter and 100 liter bags because, among other things, this amount of water depends on the GALK and the Research Society for Landscape Development Landscaping recommended for young trees. If necessary, several bags can be connected to each other, which means that 150 or 200 liters of water can be dispensed in one go. 
  • trunk circumference. Do you only want to water young trees or also trees that are a little bigger? Some bags can only be used up to a circumference of 20 centimeters. The tree bath bags are suitable for trees with a circumference of up to 30 centimeters. For larger trees, multiple bags can be combined. A trick for older trees: These can also be watered next to a trunk with one - or more - baumbad bags using a post.
  • Extension. In order to be able to increase trunk circumference and water volume, another important criterion is whether several bags can be connected to one another. The baumbad bags can be easily connected to each other with a zipper.
  • Personalization. Is it important to you to be able to have the bags printed? For example, the city logo on the bag is a clever way to prevent theft. By a Personalization A watering bag can also convey a message. For example, for the value of nature, as an invitation for neighborhood refills or advertising for green sponsorships.
  • Reviews on the product, which are publicly available, are an important reference point for the quality of the bags. Baumbad has well over 800 reviews on Amazon. There are already almost 1000 on their own website. And the number is growing all the time.
  • Customer service. If it is important to you to be able to contact the manufacturers or dealers directly and unbureaucratically if you have any questions, customer service is also important. At baumbad you have a direct contact person for all concerns.
  • Directly from the manufacturer or with wholesalers. If you buy directly from the manufacturer, you can optimize the price-performance ratio because there is no need to wholesale. In addition, it is easier to speak to the manufacturer directly if you have any questions. Cities and municipalities can buy directly from the manufacturer at baumbad.
  • Sustainability is becoming more and more important. Therefore, the question of what should happen to the many irrigation bags after they have been used becomes more relevant. The baumbad bags can be returned and will then be recycled into repair kits. The repair kits are available to all customers upon request and are particularly interesting for green sponsorships, as they enable the tree sponsors to repair the bags themselves.
  • Commitment: Another criterion for deciding which provider to buy from is their ongoing commitment. Baumbad is a member of the BdB (Waist German nurseries).
