how it works

Installation and Filling

Push the Root Seeker into the root-well. Remove Cap.  Attach the Reservoir. Fill in about a minute... while holding your own drink! Compares favorably to bag products which need to be adjusted while filling.


While you water other trees, the Root Seeker is deep soaking the the root-well. No run-off, no evaporation, no wait! Drain time is within 15 minutes for normal soil. Compares favorably to bags which take 5 hours to drain.


5 gallons of water completely soaks the root-well of small trees. All the feeder roots will have access to moisture and will use it over the next 7-10 days. At this point you can remove the Reservoirs if desired. They easily stack and store in your garage.

Hard Benefits Over Bags

Tree I.V. Use on Small Trees and Shrubs

Tree I.V. is quick & easy to fill from any source, and it doesn't need adjusted while filling. The stand-alone design does not pressure the tree, or cover the trunk to invite insects and fungus. Tree I.V. will soak the root-well with only 5-gallons. When empty, the Reservoirs are easy to remove, stack, and store if desired.

Tree I.V. Use on Larger-Sized New Trees

Tree I.V. can be set around the drip zone. For a tree to reach independence, it MUST develop a deep, sprawling root system. Bag watering may encourage root concentration around the trunk. Tree I.V. drains quickly, allowing you to use a single Reservoir on other Root Seekers. This strategy takes more time, but costs less.
