    Where is the break-away for those tree rings for when the trunk gets too large?

    One of those guy with shovel could dig 20 holes before that tool with tractor can make one.

    Pieter, congratulations, the work you have on the waterbox and the paper wrappings is a masterpiece. i'm very interested in the subject of greening deserts and deteriorated ecosystems and have been informing myself for a while now. there's a number of people around the world doing very similar stuff and you could benefit massively from checking out their work (they are al in youtube): geoff lawton (specially his experience in jordan), permaculture, john liu, sahara forest project and many others

    Is there a video out there of how it looks now? Or of similar projects before and after shots or video. Anyone know?

    This is stupid. Why would someone plant trees in lime stone, since once the roots fill the hole there will be no more growth available

    But wouldn't this box generate part of the protection a young tree needs? I mean, if bird faeces can protect a seed then the waterbox should do roughly the same right? In case of not enough humidity (e.g. Mohjavi) I would expect that it would work quite well if you add water i.e. every month. It's not ideal but it's not completely useless I would assume.

    Great job, or should I say; geweldige uitvinding! Een stap richting het tegengaan van desertificatie!

    Just curious about the carbon footprint of the planting process.

    Dear Worldofwarcraftrus The box generates water from condensation on every place where there is a reasonable RH +40% (=relative humidity above 40%) and where night temperatures drop. So in the Sahara: yes, a very high production as RH = 65% plus very cold nights. In the Caribbean area: no, no cold nights. In the Mojavi Desert: no, as the RH is only about 10%. Pls check this link kind regards Pieter Hoff
