The tree base weed suppressant is a 100% biodegradable non-woven hemp matting used in establishing trees and shrubs in a variety of landscape situations. The matting is produced from the strong fibrous component of the hemp plant, which has been the by-product for a number of years. It is designed to fit perfectly around the base of seedlings in the early stage of plant growth.
The thick, 1000 grams per square metre matting, allows zero light penetration, which effectively prevents soil erosion, suppresses weeds, preserves soil moisture and insulates plants from temperature highs/lows ensuring establishment. It then fully biodegrades back into the soil, releasing important nutrients for providing a boost in plant growth. All of the hemp used in our products are grown, processed, and manufactured in Canada.
