Habitat improvement for trees through pneumatic habitat injection. This highly effective system improves current habitats in urban environments through the lasting elimination of soil compaction around the habitat and injecting appropriate and tree-specific nutrients and root activators. This procedure ensures excellent watering/drainage, prevents (repeated) soil compaction and adds organic matter. Only natural fertilizers and soil improvement agents are used, there is no danger to cables and pipes and no soil has to be removed.
A tree root has found the already decomposed root of its predecessor and is using the released nutrients for its growth.
The cracks created with the GDI method imitate a forest situation, as a result of which the roots develop easily and any ‘flower pot effect' is avoided.
Through the application of lava pallets the cutting could be recompacted. Despite the compaction the lava pallets ensure that the cracks remain rootable for trees and that the active roots continue to have a good oxygen exchange. The living biological preparations consist of numerous tiny organisms that provide trees with nutrients in particular in the longer term. These preparations have been supplemented with soil fungi (mycorrhizae) that fuse with the roots (symbiosis).
