Landscape Fabric can Strangle Trees.

Fabric may become embedded into the tissue.
 Landscape fabric placed around trees does not stretch as the tree grows. This can result in the fabric eventually strangling the tree it is designed to protect.

An examination of the fabric around the tree should be made every few years to avoid tree damage. Remove any rock or bark mulch and cut away and remove any fabric pressing against the trunk or strangling roots. Neglecting this simple task can result in tree death.

The fabric around this root needs to be removed to prevent root death.
 When replacing the mulch, keep it 6 to 8 inches away from the base of the tree to avoid excessive moisture and root/crown rot.


  1. Thanks a lot for sharing this information. But how often should it be replaced? And what type of fabric is usually used?

    1. The weeds are actually the worst plantations naturally grown. They actually DE shape the entire lawn. The weed control fabrics provide the best and suitable way to get of the problem permanently.
