  • Abies alba - European Silver Fir

    £1.50
    from £0.66

    Abies alba - Silver fir is a long-living conifer upright-growing evergreen conifer with dark green needles that are silver underneath. The yellow-green cones which appear in late spring are cylindrical in shape and ripen to brown.

    The strong, lightweight timber is mainly used for construction, furniture, plywood and pulpwood. Young trees are also popular as Christmas trees. Ecologically, the tree is important for maintaining high biodiversity in forested areas. The tree’s deep taproots offering stability, alongside its easily biodegradable needle litter, are key in the establishment and management of silvicultural systems.

    Silver fir is shade-tolerant and able to act as a “seedling bank” under the canopy of older dominant trees for decades.

    • Reduces moisture loss.

    The woven style of this fabric creates a very strong mulch mat which helps to resist tearing and blowing free in windy conditions.

    Mulch mats are anchored into position by anchoring pegs (sold separately). Use 5 pegs per 500mm x 500mm mulch mat or 10 pegs per 1000 x 1000mm mulch mat.
