    I saw this at a park while I was in China. Our guide told me it was an IV for transplanted trees. If you can tap a tree for sap I see no reason you cannot inject needed nutrients and moisture by lifting the solution above the tap. I was just wondering if anyone out there knew anything about this. I loose a lot of transplants because I am unable to water them while I am away from my BOL.

    I have never seen or heard anything like this. What an interesting idea. Is it injected into the tree right at the bag? I see a tube running down. Or are the nutrients put into the ground?

    That looks like the idea except using pressure to force the liquid into the tree. Gravity would work as well, IMO, just not a fast. @Motomom34 it was being injected into the tree not the ground.
