Aeration and irrigation of trees in cities / Moving large trees
Due to climate change we are in need of more trees in cities serving as “air- condition”. In order to fully unfold their effect trees need to get old and large. For this purpose the roots need sufficient space and soil compaction must be delayed.
The innovative LITE-NET irrigates AND aerates tree roots extensively, efficiently and regularly. The roots may grow through the net and compaction is thus prevented.
The bases for the very voluminous, robust and flexible Lite-Nets are retentive nonwovens. These environmentally friendly, high-strength and rot-proof geotextiles/nonwovens consist of long-lasting polypropylene or biologically degradable raw material such as wood fibre and PLA. As these nonwovens contain up to approx. 90% open and interconnected voids, they can drain air and water very well on the one hand and additionally serve as a water reservoir.
