Trees can be planted for many purposes. You can plant trees for an agroforestry project, reforestation project, plantation project or ecosystem restoration project. Do you want to plant trees in one of the following areas, use the products of the Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology:
- Dry areas where normally a small percentage of the just planted trees survives;
- Eroded areas;
- Rocky areas;
- Above the tree line;
- Deserts or desert-like areas (see our projects in the Sahara desert of the desert of Kuwait);
- Areas with hot summer or cold winters;
- All other areas where trees need additional water to grow, but you want to do this in a sustainable, cheap and water saving way.
With the Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology, you will use a fraction of the normal water consumption to plant successfully trees. Besides this, you don’t need energy to plant trees (drip irrigation does).
Are you interested in using one of the Groasis products to plant and take care of your trees? Download one of the documents below to get a good indication of the costs of your project.

Do you want to plant trees with a device that is ten times re-usable? Use the Waterboxx plant cocoon. The Waterboxx plant cocoon is made from polypropylene and can be used for 10 years, even when the Waterboxx plant cocoon is used to plant trees in deserts of during period of frost. Ideally in situations when you have to plant a large surface in within a couple of years. Download here the 10 times re-useable Groasis Waterboxx® plant cocoon Project Investment Calculation template
Do you want to plant trees with the biodegradable version of the Waterboxx plant cocoon? Use the Growboxx plant cocoon! With the revolutionary Growboxx plant cocoon, a (productive) tree can be planted in combination with vegetables, shrubs or wildflowers. Ideally for planting native trees in combination with shrubs/wildflowers for ecosystem restoration projects, or to create more wealth by poor farmers (a fruit tree in combination with vegetables) all over the world.

Drip irrigation uses considerably more water and 100% more energy than when you plant trees with the Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology. Therefore, the costs will be higher than using our technology. Do you want to know the difference in costs? Download here the Excel document with a comparison of costs between the Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology and the drip irrigation technology. It is also possible calculate the benefits between drip irrigation and the Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology.
