Tree Planting Gel™

A unique planting gel designed to increase survival rates 

The Tree Planting Gel™ has been scientifically designed to aide in the survival of tree saplings. It is applied around the root zone at planting to provide essential plant nutrients, water and natural tree growth stimulants. Often saplings are planted in less than ideal moisture conditions so adding the gel provides a valuable water source for the fragile sapling.
