Bare with me...............
Why do people put buckets around newly planted trees.
Thanks in advance!
Do you mean the bucket is next to the tree?
If so, the bucket probably has small holes in the bottom to let water seep out slowly and soak into the ground rather than run off. Easier to fill a 5 gallon bucket in a minute and let it drain out over 20-30 minutes than it is to let a hose drip for a while and forget to turn it off....
First of all Titans....No such thing as a stupid question. And secondly, ditto to Felix. -Forest
Those are for helping to protect the trees from trimmers mostly, and critters, if you're talking about the plastic rings that go around the base of the tree.
I have 18 tree gators I bought used to do the same thing. Just wrap the tree, zip them up and fill. Great idea, but not for $20 a piece. I bought 18 used ones for $150 off a friend. I loan them to customers when I plant trees for one month free. Other wise they pay rent on them if they want them longer. If they lose them, they owe me for new ones.
Here is a pic
HAHAHA I second that remark! I do it all the time!
How long does it take for the water to empty out before it has to be refilled?
Depends on how many and how large are the holes. Usally a day.
