WHAT ARE TREERINGS?
Treerings are compact fertiliser rings that provide precision fertiliser placement, optimising the nutrition of trees/shrubs to enhance their growth and stimulate flowering. Place a Treering around the base of a tree/shrub and it will nourish the plant for up to 12 months, slowly breaking down into the soil naturally.
WHAT ARE TREERINGS MADE OF?
Treerings are enriched with a custom blend of nutrients and trace elements for plants, trees and shrubs, promoting vigorous growth and assisting to improve the soil. They're made up of locally sourced re-purposed materials, including horse manure and recycled paper. We also have the ability to create custom rings to cater to soil needs or specific plant species, such as roses. Ask us how!
ARE TREERINGS ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY?
Yes! Not only are Treerings made up of mostly re-purposed materials (typically waste products), they naturally degrade into the soil. With every decision we make, we consider its impact on the environment. Treerings are packaged in bio-degradable cling wrap too!
WHERE CAN I BUY TREERINGS FROM?
Our Treerings shop is currently open every Monday and Thursday, from 9am - 12pm. We offer a drive-through service in Hazelmere! The Treerings team also attend the Mundaring Garden & Farmers Market on a weekly basis in the Perth hills.
We have also partnered with four WA local nurseries! Visit our stockists page to find a nursery close to you. We have an online nursery option, so you can order Treerings from the comfort of your home and have them delivered direct to your door!
WOULD TREERINGS BE HARMFUL TO MY PETS?
No. Since the Treerings ingredients are natural, they will not be harmful to your pets. However, we caution that pets should not consume Treerings products.
To deter your puppy from destroying your newly installed Treerings (which they may see as a toy!), we recommend concealing it under the top layer of soil. Since the Treering has no smell of interest to the pup, they won't even know it's there once concealed!
HOW DO I DETER MY DOG OR BIRDS FROM DESTROYING MY TREERINGS?
Through our trials we haven’t seen many pets interested in Treerings, due to their lack of smell, but if you’re pup sees your newly installed Treering as a toy you've put out for them, we recommend burying the Treerings beneath the top layer of soil. This should conceal the ring from cheeky puppies, bandicoots or birds looking for worms.
ARE TREERINGS LOCALLY MADE?
Yes! Treerings is proudly owned and operated in Western Australia and is a family business. All of the natural ingredients and re-purposed materials come from nearby WA suppliers, with the recycled paper donated from friendly locals, vet clinics and childcare centres. Nothing is imported from outside the state.
IS IT A SMELLY FERTILISER?
Treerings have no smell!
Even though Treerings are largely made up of animal manure, our carefully considered manufacturing process eliminates the smell, so you won’t have a smelly backyard after fertilising!
HOW LONG DO TREERINGS LAST?
Treerings are densely compacted, therefore last up to 12 months. They will gradually breakdown into the soil over this time, but it means you only need to fertilise your garden trees/shrubs annually! A Treering may degrade faster if exposed to elements, however, you still only need to replace them once per year, as it's still working underground.
