Tree injury prevention

I have received repeated questions from either visitors or village people on why plastic cover was used ? Following photos were taken on 12 July 2012 when the trees were 11-month old. For weed management, I don’t use herbicide to control the weed. With my workers available, i ensure them to cut the weed by lawn cutter. Prior to the countermeasure there were some trees damaged completely during the cutting process. Later, suggestion to cover the tree with a protective mean by using plastic bottle.


This tree had been injured prior to countermeasure. The injured location may be weak enough to support if strong wind is present, the tree tends to collapse. If the cut is too deep, the tree may die.


The cut was quite obvious. With the protective cover installed, worker will be alerted to retract the cutting stroke.
