Plant Ties / Tree Wrap

Everything in your garden should biodegrade!

biodegradable tree wrap

There are all kinds of ties, wraps, nets, straps, harnesses, and wires for holding plants to stakes during shipping, at the wholesaler/retailer, or in the garden. When conventional petroleum-based plastic is used, the ensuing broken ties become trash, litter, or waste. If a biodegradable plastic was used the discarded ties and wrap would eventually become plant food and soil enhancements.

Green Dot has several bioplastic formulations that could make biodegradable tree wrap and ties of different types – soft, stretchy, rigid, or brightly colored. The ties could be simple, tape-like, strips or more complicated molded shapes. Tape in a wider format could be used as a tree wrap or bark protector.
