Clever Planting Saves Resources & Money
The Treenurt is a water and nutrient storage module which significantly reduces the failure rate of young trees and vulnerable plants, whilst radically minimising maintenance costs, such as watering frequency and volume as well as the resources needed for these activities.
Moreover, long-term tests at the renowned University of Bremen in Germany clearly demonstrate young trees equipped with Treenurts to develop improved foliage and wood performance as well as increased leaf count, even after more than three weeks without additional watering.
The base material for our Treenurt is a sustainable, completely biodegradable and combustible material with a 100% regenerative resource proportion. The polymer matrix consists of lignin, the second most common, naturally occurring biopolymer after cellulose. Lignin can be decomposed by rotting in exactly the same way as grown wood and can even be disposed of by burning, without producing any additional CO2!
The granulate inside the Treenurt is able to absorb several times its own volume in water and acts as a water reserve for root growth providing water retention and humification. It also provides the soil with organic soil additives and ensures natural and rapid humification of the simplest of soils. Due to the unique storage capacity, Treenurt is able to save water over longer periods of time. This reduces costs considerably – especially in commercial use.
Another advantage of the system is the controlled water and nutrient delivery, which reduces the stress status of the plants and helps them to grow faster and more healthy.
