Specifications For The W.A.N.E. 3000

The WANE 3000 unit is easily installed and blends into the surrounding hardscape pavement while providing the necessary water, air and nutrients at a level 12 inches below the surface. When water and air enter the perforated lid they react with the time release components to send essential nutrients to the trees root system completing the Water, Air Nutrient Exchange which is vital to preserving trees.

Tree Preservation Measures for New Construction Sites

Part I. General

Before construction or land clearing begins, the job site should be inspected by a professional tree care specialist. A tree survey should be developed listing the types of trees, their condition and their life expectancy on that particular site. Recommendations can be made to beautify and prepare valuable trees for the environmental change that will occur when the property is developed.
Diseased trees, threes damaged beyond repair and trees in danger of falling should be removed. Early removal can save dollars for the developer and create a safer building site for construction workers.
Young, desirable trees can be relocated on site if they are in the way of construction.
Valuable trees can be more easily protected if the arborist is the first on the job site Trimming can be accomplished to beautify and accommodate buildings.
Fertilizing is often necessary to prepare the tree for the shock of losing part of its root system which is sometime unavoidable during construction.
Spraying or other forms of tree care are best done in advance of actual land clearing

Part II. Tree Protection

When the site is ready for clearing, trees should be protected from land clearing equipment. Barricades should be erected around the tree to protect two-thirds (2/3) of the tree's dripline (an imaginary perpendicular line that extends downward from the outer-most tip of the tree branches to the ground). The area around the tree protected by the barricade is there to keep heavy equipment off the tree roots which can compact soil, damage roots or scar the trunk. Grading away roots or adding fill (4 to 6 inches) can kill most trees in Florida. (Fill amounts vary with the geographical location and soil types.) The barricade should stand as a signal against certain practices:
No storage of equipment inside the barricade.
No dumping of petroleum products, herbicides of other chemicals inside the barrocade.
No burial of debris within 100' of barricades.
No fires within 10 yards of barricades.
The area underneath valuable trees and inside the barricade should be cleared or worked with hand tools.
All underground power, water, telephone lines, etc., should be outside the tree's dripline whenever possible. Consulting the arborist about placement of trenches is vital.
Don't allow trees to stand in water. Submersion of the roots for periods up to 30 days can kill trees.
If the tree is barricaded and all the above precautions are taken, a tree has an excellent chance of survival.

Part III: Trees To Be Surrounded By Hardscaping

Only good specimens, long-living trees should be considered to remain in paved areas because of the unnatural environment in which they will be growing. Trees which will be surrounded by hardscape pavement should be deep-root fertilized since this is the last time an arborist will have access to the entire root system of the tree. The tree will need extra nutrition to help it adjust to its new environment. When the base for the paving (specifically asphalt) is laid, it will probably have to be done by a machine. At this point, the barricades will have to be moved closer to the trunks of the trees. Curbs should remain a minimum of 6' from the trunk whenever possible. After paving is completed, a system of W.A.N.E. Tree Units should be installed through the hardscape paving to provide the tree with the necessary water, air and nutrients that it needs to survive.
