Weed Mats shade out weeds to allow your tree's roots to grow out along the surface of the soil, the way they do naturally, without the competition from grass and weed roots. They also eliminate this competition for nutrients for your young trees. This is an excellent alternative to herbicides and manual weed control such as hoeing or cultivation. It is a must for organic plantings, or wildlife plantings where you do not come back to visit the trees regularly.
