By far the biggest contributor to the high mortality rates suffered by urban trees is drought stress. Water is vital for the growth of trees. It is not only required for all the biochemical requirements for growth photosynthesis, respiration and transport, but also mechanical support to leaf and stem tissue. Insufficient (or inefficient) watering will result in loss of leaf turgor and consequent reduction in new shoot extension. Eventually this will lead to die-back and, if not remedied, the loss of the tree. Waiting until the tree shows signs of drought stress before watering is known as reactive irrigation. Whilst this might keep the tree alive, it will often result in stem die-back and possibly long term structural defects in the tree. Research has shown that trees irrigated proactively i.e. by implementing a regular watering regime, have over three times the weight of new roots growing into backfill soil material compared to those watered reactively. The RootRain Civic system is a very well proven large capacity irrigation system which has a vandal resistant inlet with a powder coated aluminium cap on a retainer chain. Popular with landscape architects and contractors, the Civic has been widely used on projects demanding a high level of specification.
