        Comments about DeWitt Dew Right Tree Watering Bag:

        We are in the midst of a three year drought in California and last year (2014) we purchased these bags to keep prized newly planted trees and shrubs alive. We also hoped to use them to save established but suffering smaller trees and shrubs from dying, including fruit trees. We purchased twice in multiples. We did not lose a tree, even those where planted with much root competition. However, as the season wore on we had problems that required solving. The zippers were not easy (WD 40 helped)and I had to use pliers to move them up and down. The bags go up the tree main stem by 2'+ and the bark under them is sun sensitive when the bag is removed, causing burning or requiring you to find a way to shade newly exposed bark from the sun. Feeder roots grew out of the soil into the bags, clogging them so the water didn't drip out and a mosquito problem developed, it was hard to clear the roots out but we used a soft brush after taking them down and letting them dry out before putting back up. These bags did their job. I washed and cleaned and oiled the zippers at the end of the hot season (November 15) and rolled them up together and stored them. I think folding would have caused breaks in the plastic fiber. Yesterday I began putting them back on the trees. It will be another drought year it seems (February 10, 2015). We'll see if they last another year. Right now I have 25 of these bags deployed doing drip watering for young figs, establishing ornamental 15 gallon and 24" boxed trees, citrus and persimmon espaliers in a crowded setting, and some old established shrubs that wouldn't make it through the drought otherwise. Where I can't get them up against the trunk, I get as near as I can and zip the bag around a long wooden stake. We are hoping to get three seasons+ from our investment. The alternative of just pouring water onto each plant wasn't sensible. You can even use gray waters in these bags - we did when we had it.
