|Fabric Girdling – If you have fabric on your tree sites, you need to walk along the site to check each tree or shrub. If the fabric is too close (girdling) to the tree, it will do harm and can affect the growth of the tree. An additional slit in the fabric needs to be made to accommodate any new growth. This should be checked every year until the fabric is no longer viable. If you do not have the time to do this yourself, please contact us, as we may be able to set up a service to help you out.
