TASSU - A protective collar for seedlings, made of natural materials
Tassu is a decayable seedling collar manufactured of recycled paper. Tassu seedling collar can be impregnated with natural repellents and micro-nutrients,if necessary. Tassu seedling collar is placed around the butt of theseedling; it protects the seedling against grass and other competing groundcover vegetation, and reduces competition for root space. By reducingsurrounding ground cover vegetation, Tassu improves the seedling's growthconditions in terms of water and nutrients, and helps create an open spacearound the seedling. Channels on the surface of Tassu seedling collargather water, and as the collar becomes moist it settles on to the ground. Whenwet, Tassu stays tightly in place, and if it dries, the added starch gluehelps it stay in place. Tassu seedling collar protects the seedling forthe decisive first years, after which it decays. Tassu seedling collarwas designed to guarantee successful planting of seedlings and to help them growinto tall quality trees.
