Ecotex™ Tree Mats
Our biodegradable tree mats are made from the first professional grade, weed control membrane made purely from organic material that is fully compostable, has a low carbon footprint and is naturally fire resistant. Our Ecotex™ Tree Mats provide biodegradable tree root protection.
The fabric contained in our tree mats is our Ecotex MulchMat™ material, it's an effective, easy to use and economical solution. It may look and feel like conventional non-woven, petrochemical based weed control fabric but is the only membrane made purely from an environmentally friendly alternative called Polylactic Acid (PLA).
PLA is made entirely from annually renewable, starch rich vegetables with production requiring fewer fossil fuel resources and generating less greenhouse gases than traditional plastic fabrics. Furthermore, Ecotex MulchMat™ is the only weed control fabric certified to the stringent EN 13432:2000 test for compostability - fully breaking down to nutritious matter and leaving no synthetic residues.
Ecotex MulchMat™, which is earthy brown coloured, is also stronger, more durable and easier to handle than any previous "degradable" fabrics and resists airborne seed settlement far better.
