This iReport is part of an assignment:
Heat and droughts strike U.S.
Root Feed trees now, or chain saw them down later!
Every day, trees throughout the country are suffering the signs of stress. Surface irrigation wastes water. The water needs to get down to the root level so that it can be best absorbed.
As the eldest son of the inventor of the Ross Root Feeder, who worked in the family business for 15 years, I do consider myself to be somewhat of an expert.
It is a shame to lose a tree.
p.s. - I found this note in my grandmothers scrapbook from Admiral Nimitz' widow...Apparently the Admiral was a root feeder fan.
