These areas have various problems:
- Planting before the snow falls and the frost period starts is difficult;
- Often, the recently planted trees or bushes die because frost hits their undeveloped root systems;
- The planting period is very short;
- Planting after the snow has melted is difficult because the period between cold and warm (or even hot) temperatures is very short;
- This results in a too warm, hot and/or dry climate for the roots to develop fast enough in the mostly rocky soil, which would create a balance between the water capturing capacity and the water evaporating quantity of the leaves.
The Groasis waterboxx solves these problems:
- You can plant saplings year-round when there is no snow; but the best period is at the end of the summer;
- It gives you the necessary capacity to plant big areas;
- You can plant two saplings per box;
- In the following summer, you cut the smallest of the two saplings trees if both have survived the first winter;
- You can also leave them both;
- If only one survived, you still have a planting success;
- In general, planting with the waterboxx in mountainous areas will give, using the different methods, close to a 100% planting result;
- If you use the biodegradable model of the waterboxx, it can serve as a source of nutrients after degrading; and you do not have to return to remove them.
