    Default Weed Barrier for Tree Seedlings

    Does anyone know where I can get these?

    I watched a video of a person planting loblolly pines, they would plant the seedling. Then put a plasticlike disk around the seeding as a weed barrier.

    I've seen the ones at lowes/hd made out of recycled tires, but they are little expensive for a lot of seedlings.

    ((~$16-20 per)

    Any help would be great... Thanks..

    At 1:37 you will see the weed ring they are using... I'm looking for something similar. Looks like a glorified paper plate, but I'm assuming they last longer.

    Thanks

    Take a look at VisPore Tree Mat. It's not the same as what you saw in the video, but they are very effective and cost a little over a dollar each.

    I use wood chip mulch. Cheap, natural, biodegradable.

    I used to do contract tree planting - about 7 layers of newspaper with some mulch ( straw, wood chips..) works well.

    Used silage plastic works nicely if there's a farmer using bags or piles in your area.
