Tree Gunnels can offer weed control for all size trees. The smaller 380mm Round Gunnels or the 500mm Square Tree Gunnels are ideal for tube stock plantings, while the larger 900mm or 1.4m Square Tree Gunnels offer weed protection for larger established trees.
Tree Gunnels create very harmonious growing conditions under the mat, as the water and air can pass through the mat, it helps to retain moisture and therefore promotes microbial activity, which helps to achieve advanced growth rate and success rates in the first couple of years of planting.
