Hessian wrapping

Trees in Hard Landscapes, A Guide for Delivery, published by the Trees and Design Action Group in September 2014, defines hessian wrapping as: ‘…a rustic cloth typically employed by nurseries to protect tree trunks and root balls when moving tree stock around. It can occasionally be seen left on newly planted trees to help insulate the young stem against very cold weather or as a method of soft protection for the tree if in an area where damage to the bark is likely.’
