Reliable nutrient provision for trees
Trees often do not get enough water and nutrients, especially after replanting and long dry periods at the height of summer. The Funke tree irrigation angle offers an effective solution to this problem. Slatted DN/OD 160 pipes with reinforced walls are installed in the upper third of the root ball during replanting. These are connected to the irrigation angle and provide a targeted supply of water and nutrients to the tree’s root area. When used in matured forests, the height of the Funke tree irrigation angle must be adjusted in accordance with the growth of the roots.
High storage volume, good water output
Each Funke tree irrigation angle has a side length of approx. 1.30 m and holds approx. 60 l of water. These components are usually installed in pairs around the ball area. This approach provides the root area with a total volume of 120 l, though the actual quantity of water is much higher due to the instantaneous infiltration. The slatted pipes are sheathed in a special geo-textile, which is placed over a plastic weave. Although this increases the storage volume even further, it does not affect the water output or the permeability.
A large opening in the cast-iron grating section allows the system to be filled quickly. The top section can be transported by car, and has a load class of B 125.
The advantages in practice:
- Quick and easy installation
- Quick filling
- Optimal supply for planted trees
- Cast-iron grating can be transported by car
