S3E6 — Why Sensors Alone are Not Enough to Grow Urban Trees with René Voogt of ConnectedGreen

February 9, 2022

I speak with René Voogt on the promise of IoT soil moisture sensors to uncover the world under our city trees.

This week, I am joined by René Voogt, founder of ConnectedGreen, to discuss the problems facing newly planted urban trees, why overwatering trees is just as damaging as underwatering trees, why a nuanced understanding of soil biology is critical to applying sensors correctly, and how nearly 2,000 sensors across the Netherlands and beyond are helping landscaping companies, municipalities, nurseries, and water boards transform from reactive to proactive tree care.
