Results recently to hand show an extraordinary result in the survivability of new forest plantings in very tough soil and climatic conditions.
One State in the USA planted their typical 4 tree species using the EcoCover square / EcoPin system by way of a trial. Where historically new planting losses have been very very high (due to the tough planting conditions in regard to both soil and climate), using the EcoCover plant protection system they achieved;
Jeffrey Pine 96.2% survival rate
Sugar Pine 100% survival rate
Intense Cedar 100% survival rate
White Fir 100% survival rate
The EcoCover system provides a huge cost benefit to the annual planting regime that would realize a far larger number of plantings for NO increase in the annual budget.
