The Tree Diaper is a National Science Foundation sponsored new technology that features rain/snow-water harvesting, super slow release irrigation, weed control, stormwater retention, erosion control, and mitigation of harsh weather conditions. This webinar presents findings of field tests comparing the Tree Diaper with traditional watering bag on trees planted in road medians in Richmond, Virginia. Results of field test suggest this new technology may provide another option for helping ensure newly planted trees receive enough water and increase tree survival, especially when regular watering may not be practical.
Continuing Education Credits: One Continuing Education Credit for Landscape Architects; Society of American Foresters (CFEs); and PLNA Certified Horticulturalist (PCH) will be offered to attendees. One CEU for International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborists will be awarded with 80% or higher score on webinar quiz. Certificates of attendance will be provided after the program.
