Prevent Weedeater Damage To Young Trees

The way to prevent weed eater damage on young trees is to keep the revolving string away from the bark and cambium layer of the tree. Stay a couple of inches away from the trunk of your trees.

I have seen more young trees killed by weedeaters than any other cause. Death by weedeater is a common problem with inexperienced gardeners and new homeowners.

It is better to hand clip the blades of grass around the base of the tree than to take a chance on damaging your trees.
