Tree Mats, Rolls and Staples

Tree Squares (3'x 3') are primarily used for random tree or shrub planting. They offer weed control and conserve moisture. University and Government studies have proven that it greatly increases survivability and growth. Tree squares come in 3' squares.

3' x 3' Tree Square plus Staples = $1.65/ea






Sunbelt Woven Ground Cover (3' x 300') consists of 3.2 oz. polypropylene, which resists tearing, puncturing and weed penetration. It is approved for most government weed control applications.

Sunbelt is ideal for greenhouses, outdoor displays and as a weed barrier for plantings without topical coverings where a weed free environment is a must.  Sunbelt is striped every 12 inches to aid in plan alignment and is UV stabilized to last even in direct sunlight.

3' x 300' Fabric Roll plus staples = $110.00 or $0.50/ft

The Nicollet SWCD provides tree squares and weed barrier rolls through our annual Tree Sales Program.

Fabric weed barriers are a low cost option for landowners who wish to avoid the hassle of weed control around newly planted windbreaks, shelterbelts, and field windbreaks.  Once installed, fabric weed barriers offer years of protections and increase growth rates for both trees and shrubs.


Grow Tubes (4' tall)   Our grow tubes are great for protecting tree seedlings from animals and weather.  Acting like a mini green house, these tubes promote faster tree growth and minimize future trunk trimmings and shaping of trees.  Growth rates of 2-3 times faster have been observed in the past two growing seasons by SWCD staff, after installing grow tubes.

Tubes are $5.00 each and include support stake and fasteners.
