EarthMat Eco™ Fabric Weed Mat - Conservation Size

The GreenTerra EarthMat™ is a fully degradable weed barrier that is made from post-consumer recycled synthetic and natural fibers. The EarthMat is a non-woven fabric mat, allowing air and water to penetrate the soil.  This offers distinct advantage over solid plastic mats, which heat up the soil and block moisture.  The EarthMat lasts 3-4 years before breaking down, lasting for the entire establishment cycle of high-value tree and shrub crops.  With a physical weed barrier present, the need for herbicides is drastically reduced.

The EarthMat Eco is an affordable solution for forestry plantings and difficult-to-access sites, as 4 times as many trees can be protected for not much more cost than one Original EarthMat.  The EarthMat Eco has a center X slit which allows it to be placed over the top of tree seedlings with ease while maintaining integrity of the mat.
