Green-tech has launched a new biodegradable tree range, known as Treebio, today at APF 2018.
The range consists of 100% biodegradable spiral tree guards and spiral vole guards, bio weed mats, bamboo canes and mulch mat pegs.
Sales director, Richard Gill said:
“This is our response to the growing desire to reduce the use of standard plastics across the industry. We are very excited to unveil, after an extensive R&D period, Treebio – the new biodegradable tree range. Treebio is an eco-friendly, weed and erosion control range of planting essentials.
“We are always searching for plastic alternatives that protect trees and the environment. The spiral and vole guards contain biodegradable polymers that will break down. The materials all adhere to EU guidelines and are independently tested to gain DIN CERTO certification. They are classified as fully compostable after 4-5 years in the place of use.”
Richard Kay, Green-tech’s chairman continues:
“Feedback and first-hand experience has given Green-tech an insight into landscapers requirements. The Treebio range comes as a result of this to help our customers balance their clients’ needs. This is whilst addressing their environmental conscience and complying with their corporate responsibilities.”
The Bio Spiral tree guard is available in a range of heights from 45cm up to 150cm and three different diameters – 38mm, 50mm and 65mm. The Vole guard is available in heights of 15cm and 20cm and diameters of 38mm and 50mm.
The Bio Weed mats are 100% plant material which will biodegrade to compost at the end of their lifetime. This provides a nutrient rich element for the soil and negates any possible ongoing maintenance costs.
The APF Exhibition is the UK’s largest forestry, woodland, arboriculture, fencing and biomass show. Green-tech will be on stand C8A. Visitors are able to see the new Treebio range and take a sample of the biodegradable spiral tree guards.
