Low-Profile TreeGator Prevents Transplant Shock

When you're making an investment and effort in planting new trees in your landscape, you can assure their survival and growth by using TreeGator - a truly simple and innovative drip irrigation system in a bag.

TreeGator's benefit kicks in instantly to help your new tree through the shock and stress that comes from transplanting it, releasing the proper amount of water directly to the root structure where it is needed most.

The TreeGator is designed to significantly reduce tree loss by ensuring an even amount of moisture in summer and preventing frost damage in winter. This specially designed water bag has been created by landscape pros to minimize evaporation and keep the soil damp, which is the #1 failure point of newly planted trees and shrubs.

Unlike other drip bags, TreeGator Junior Pro is low profile and rises only 6 inches from the base of your tree. If you properly add a thick bed of mulch, you won't even see the Junior Pro! It's also useful to use on shrubs with a lower trunk that will not accommodate the larger drip bags.

With hot summers and droughts the norm around the country, TreeGator is an absolute necessity to protect your new trees and shrubs. You will not have to worry about whether you have provided your tree enough water, and you can go on vacation and relax knowing that this nifty drip system is taking all the anxiety out of caring for your landscaping.

TreeGator is super easy to install without any tools, and it can easily be filled up with a standard garden hose or can even be connected to a rain barrel! It's a super time saver that takes the worry out of continually remembering whether you've watered your new tree or not. Plus, all the water that goes into the drip bag is used up with no waste, so TreeGator is environmentally friendly with regard to water use.

The bag will be empty in approximately 5 to 8 hours, so fill 1 to 2 times a week or as needed, and you're ready to go.

Don't wait - get yours with your new purchase today!


Typically, a fully filled TreeGator will empty over a 5-8 hour period, discharging water from the two elbow-shaped PVC emitters. If your TreeGator bag is emptying faster than expected, ensure your bag is completely full of water, and confirm that the emitter nozzles are inserted correctly and/or are not missing. Ensuring your TreeGator is placed on a flat surface can also help regulate watering - it will drain faster when placed on a slope.

Our Tree Savior

One of our evergreen trees was so root bound from its original burlap wrap that our arborist recommended a daily dose of slow drip water in addition to regular watering. The TreeGator saved our tree!! I refill it every other week and our tree gets the extra water where it is especially needed without wasting water.

Great and Convenient!

We love our Tree Gator Jr.! It takes the guesswork out of watering our new Maple Tree, which is growing nicely. We tend to overwater and the Gator solves this problem. Thanks FGT for the great products and your excellent service! We highly recommend the Tree Gator Jr.

A must have for deep watering new trees...

We included this TreeGator in our first tree order and we're very glad we did! It's made watering a breeze and works just as advertised. Holds a lot of water that drips out very slowly (at least 8 hours) and looks nicer than the diy bucket system we use in the back yard. Can't speak to longevity since we just got it a few weeks ago, but we'll likely purchase more as we add more trees to our property. My only complaint is that the cap can be really hard to open, but at least that means it seals well.

This is a great product, I am glad I purchased it even if I only use it from time to time. I do wonder if it shouldn't have more drip outlets rather than just the 2, it seems to be enough, however. I was half expecting there to be a strip of stuff like the weeping hoses underneath that slowly let the water out. Regardless of my musings I do think it is an excellent product, sturdy and very useful particularly with the recent drought conditions.

Perfect solution

This is perfect for my favorite tree. It keeps my tree properly hydrated with so little effort. My tree is doing so well. My dad loved how easy-to-use. So I bought him one for his favorite tree.
