The black tree T-PEEs were designed for use with trees that flourish in heat and in tropical environments, such as citrus. The black tree T-PEE absorbs the heat, increasing the temperature by 12 degrees around the base of the tree. The white tree T-PEEs are good for trees that deteriorate in hot, tropical environments.
Most well water is 72-degrees. When using the tree T-PEE with a micro-sprinkler, the well water increases the temperature at the base of the tree by 10+ degrees. The micro-sprinkler spraying the 72-degree water against the inside walls cause a mist that encompasses the tree keeping the tree warmer.
Every five gallons of water sprayed within the tree T-PEE equals three inches of rain on the young trees. By containing the water within the 24-inch base, the water is directed to the roots and saves approximately 90% water compared to traditional practices.
With the tree T-PEE you will use 75% less than your normal program requires. You’re not wasting it on weeds and grass, it’s all going to the tree.
YES! All citrus trees should have a tree T-PEE for a good head start.
Yes. Your region and temperature would determine the color (White or Black) of tree T-PEE to use.
All single trunk trees that are watered by drip or micro-sprinkler irrigation systems. The tree T-PEE is just a like a nursery in the field or putting a turbo-charger on your engine! Trees that have used T-PEEs include, but are not limited to:
- All citrus including orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit
- All nut trees including almond, pistachio, pecan, macadamia
- Date Palm
- Homeowners also use on tomato, and any other plantings in the yard!
Yes, the tree T-PEE is a sprout inhibitor.
No. Grass will not grow in a black tree T-PEE because of the increase in heat and lack of sun.
Because the water is contained around each tree, you get seven to nine inches of deeper root growth per year, and that makes for a stronger tree.
The tree T-PEE doesn’t affect feeder root growth. Feeder roots will grow to the drip line of the trees. (Where it rains)
Yes, up to 60 mph.
Yes, one of the many added benefits of the tree T-PEE is critter control.
From the very first day planted, and up to five years. This allows for good establishment of the root system.
You simply put them on your next reset or new setting.
Tree T-PEEs are made from 100% recycled plastic and have been known to last 20+ years.
