Treessentials Company protects more tree seedlings than anyone in the country. After years of experience and several million seedlings we have learned a few important lessons. When you plant a seedling it becomes the most vulnerable root in the area. Your success rate improves exponentially when your trees reach 4 feet in height. Next to protecting your hardwood tree seedling with a Tubex treeshelter, controlling grass competition and providing nutrition to the roots is your best assurance of fast, healthy growth.
The dimensions of the VisPore Tree Mat are 3-feet x 3-feet x 2.5-mils thick. The VisPore Tree Mat provides 9 square feet of weed control around each seedling.
For your convenience, there is pre-cut slit in the center of each VisPore Tree Mat for easy installation over the tree seedling.
The VisPore Tree Mat is easily transported to your planting site
The VisPore Tree Mat is uniquely manufactured of light-weight, durable, black, polyethylene film.
The unique construction of the VisPore Tree Mat allows rainfall and moisture to flow through the exclusive “micro-funnel” holes (over 400 per square inch!) while blocking the sunlight and preventing the establishment of competing weeds.
The VisPore Tree Mat provides 3 years of continuous weed control around each seedling.
- VisPore® Tree Mat and Right Start® Fertilizer are specifically designed to address the problems of plant competition and timely availability of critical nutrients.
- Keeps Weeds Out - Give seedlings a fighting chance with a VisPore Tree Mat. Our mat measures nine square feet and keeps weeds from threatening your new trees. It blocks 92% of the sunlight to kill existing weeds and grasses. Its black material also radiates heat to the soil to kill and stop new weed and grass shoots from growing for over three years.
- Encourages Faster Growth - By controlling weeds, each, seedling can access all the water, minerals and nutrients available in the soil. It doesn't have to compete with weeds and grasses. And the warmer temperature generated in the soil beneath our mat creates an ideal environment for root growth. This all works to help seedlings grow healthier and faster.
- Lets Water Through -
Over 400 Microfunnels® cover each square inch of our mat. These tiny funnel-shaped holes block sunlight and weeds, but allow water to trickle trough the soil.
- Easy To Install -
In most cases, little preparation is needed to install the VisPore Tree Mat. Simply spread the mat, shiny side up, over matted grass or bare ground so the tiny funnels are pointing toward the soil.
The patented design of VisPore's one way micro funnel allows water to travel through the mat to the root of the seedling. VisPore traps the moisture and protects it from evaporation caused by sunlight and wind.
The better you control weeds, the faster your seedlings will grow. Forestors recommend at least 3 years of weed control. Thee VisPore Tree Mat is absolutely unique. These 3' x 3' mats block sunlight, killing weeds for three years. No more spraying, no more hoeing.
