Controls weeds and protects roots. These durable polypropylene mesh tree circles will eliminate the need for using dangerous string trimmers around trees — a risk to tender bark. Each tree circle measures 35-inches across and will easily slip around the base of any young tree. Cover with 2 to 4 inches of mulch, chipped bark, or landscape stone for a neat and tidy look.

These circles should keep my delicate trees from getting harmed by lawn equipment since there won't be any grass growing there.

These Typar circles are the best weed preventive I have found. I have too many trees to hand weed and Typar is just what I need to keep the trees happy and healthy.

John R on Sep 5, 2018
I want the trees to do well and having it mulched around the tree keeps having to weed or get the mower up close which could damage the tree.

It's nice to keep away weeds from around the tree and it will keep my husband away with his weed wacker.

You could not ask for an easier way to keep a clean area around your trees than the Typar Tree Circles. They are around all of our trees.

More economical than the rubber mats. Plus the mulch I reapply heavily each fall is aesthetically more appealing.

What is TYPAR TREE CIRCLE made of and does this product have any chemicals that might seep into the soil ?
Amir T on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These tree circles are made of Typar, a polypropylene nonwoven breathable fabric that is used as a barrier to discourage weeds, while allowing air, water, and nutrients to pass through to the root system. Typar is not water soluble, nor is this tree circle coated with any chemicals to leach into the soil.
Can a graft be covered with mulch?
John H on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: NO. If the tree senses a possible fertile substance (mulch, soil, etc.) against its truck above the grafting knot, the tree will try (and usually succeed) to send out roots into that fertile substance. If the tree accomplishes that "higher rooting," then the benefit of any dwarfing root stock and grafting will be lost and you will end up with a standard sized tree.
Could I use these around my blueberry, blackberry and elderberry bushes?
Jessica S on Apr 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My wife & I successfully have used "Typar Tree Circles" ("TTC"s) around the base of our
"Silver Sage" Cenizo bushes in West Texas as a means to block the growth of weeds which otherwise would spring-up beneath the Cenizo bushes. We cover the TTCs with crushed gravel/small rocks. The material used in the TTCs has held-up well over the past couple of years in very adverse weather conditions to which the material has been subjected.
how do I protect my fruit trees from birds and squirrels eating the fruit?
Ronna R on Apr 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You would need to use a different product. This product prevents weed growth at the base of the tree.
I have been told that you should never put mulch up to the trunk of any tree, yet the picture shows just this sort of thing. Which is true, no bark up to the bark or ??? thanks, G
Greg S on Mar 10, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This picture is from the product manufacturer and shouldn't be used as a guide for planting. Keep mulch about 12 to 18 inches from the trunk for any size of tree. Mulch should not be piled against the trunk (above) because roots may grow there (below) and girdle the trunk.
Are there 4 in a package?
Mary C on May 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Yes this is a package of 4.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
will pecan trees yield in zone 10?
Carole F on Oct 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you look in the Characteristics section of any individual pecan variety, you will see a Zone range. If Zone 10 is included, the tree will do well there. Unfortunately, pecan trees need a cold dormant period and Zone 9 is about the furthest south they will produce.
Do I have to remove the grass from under where the tree circle will would be placed?
Michael M on May 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not if you plan to mulch atop the circle. I never remove grass. I tack down outer edges of circle with landscape staples. Then I place 3 to 4 inches bark chips or other mulch on top. This allows mowing slightly onto the mulch.

not what I expected
The typar tree circles were flimsy. I expected something a bit more substantial.....could achieve same effect by buying landscape fabric (less expensive) and cutting it to desired size & shape.

They actually work as advertised!!
Since the first days (many years ago) of buying Stark trees, I have used the Typar Tree Circles on all of my fruit trees (18 at present). The Typar fabric is very sturdy but allows the moisture to pass through to the soil and keeps the weeds, stray up-shoots, etc. from breaking the surface and causing problems and extra work.

I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to NOT have to weed around the base of their trees, but also wants the moisture into the soil. Try them, you'll like them!!

Typar tree circles
They are not very sturdy, and although I "stapled" them to the ground and covered with mulch, the weeds are already coming through. They worked well the first year, though.

typer Tree Circles
Easy to use, inexpensive, but can be made free standing wit pourous non rotting pseudo cloth- cut to size with shears. Doesn't hold retained multch on top. Prefer a rubberized mat, which stays around tree, and helps retained mulch on top. This is a more expensive alternative.

Tree circles
These circles are too thin for my applications. They are landscape fabric material, conveniently cut into a circle, but I find they easily blow away with the wood mulch on top. I guess they would be fine if one uses a river rock topping. I have two large rocks on top to keep it in place along with the wood mulch.

There is better stuff out there...
I did receive my typar tree circles on time and they were exactly as described. I did use them and they are working fine. I did find some other materials that were MUCH cheaper and maybe a little better for the environment so I am going to use those materials from now on...

These work well for starter trees.
The circles were good quality and easy to install. Their small size makes them ideal for starter trees.

Great Product
The tree circles worked well on my new peach trees. I put cedar ships on top and it gave a nice guide for mowing and kept the grass and weeds away.
