Covertex™ Tree Mats

These tree mats are made from our Covertex™ ground cover - which is a black, woven polypropylene, premium grade fabric designed to offer the optimum balance between shade and permeability; and has a high degree of UV stabiliser added to protect it from the harmful effects of exposure to sunlight. Our Covertex™ Tree Mats provide effective weed control allowing newly planted trees to establish their selves, without the competition from weeds.

The dense black superior weave of Covertex™ effectively suppresses competitive weed growth, conserves ground moisture, maintains a clean surface, and creates a favourable environment for healthy tree growth.

The fabric also has all the properties of a standard geotextile, so you can have piece of mind that no chemicals are going leach from the fabric to your trees.
