What is the right planting distance?
For ecosystem restoration we recommend a planting density of 10x10 meters with in each Waterboxx® plant cocoon a tree and a bush that you also see together in nature. We suggest to start with pioneer trees, because these will create the conditions in which growth and multiplication automatically takes place. And this results in a higher density and a faster recovery process. For fruit trees it depends on the variety, but according to the general rule, you should plant a minimum of 400 trees per hectare, because you do not plant two fruit trees in one Waterboxx® plant cocoon.
