Frost Blanket for Trees



Our Frost Blanket for Trees is a spunbound, 2.5 ounce geotextile fabric that is used to protect trees in cold weather. The fabric resists UV degradation and also allows water and air to pass through it. Using this blanket keeps the air closer to the trees warmer than outside of it. All seams are sewn, not glued, for a higher quality performance.

The frost blanket can help to extend the harvest time for your trees and is available in a number of roll sizes.

Frost Blankets on Trees

You Can Protect Your Tropical & Subtropical Trees From Freeze

When temperatures drop below 32 degrees over a good amount of time, it will definitely be cold enough to freeze trees, their buds, blossoms, fruits, leaves, etc.

There are certain trees that can easily be damaged by colder weather including:

Citrus, jacaranda, Catalpa, Oleander, Eugenia, and many other tropical and sub-tropical plants. Tender, new growth can be seriously damaged from freezing temperatures.

What You Need Do To Protect Your Trees Against Freezing Weather

Cover sensitive trees and plants with burlap, tarps, sheets, etc that reach the ground to trap in accumulated warmth from the ground. Use stakes to decrease any contact between the cover and the foliage. You should move smaller trees and potted plants to more protected areas.

Make Sure Your Trees Are Well-Watered

Moist soil is known to absorb solar radiation over dry soil and will radiate heat during the evening hours. If you have a large tree that requires protection, running the sprinklers during the coldest time of the day (between 4:00 am and 8:00 am) will give the tree an added edge. This plan uses dormant heat that is released when water changes from liquid to solid. When crystalization forms on the leaf surface, it draws moisture from the leaf tissue. There will be damage from dehydration but will be a lot less stringent if the tree is not lacking moisture.

Plan For A Freeze Ahead Of Time

Remove weeds and turf from under a tree's canopy. Keep in mind, bare soil absorbs and reflects heat best. Wood chip mulch prevents soil from losing moisture and insulates roots. Plants that are sensitive to frost should be planted near buildings or walls that reflect heat.

Helping A Tree Recover

Stay away from pruning until spring sets in. You should wait and see what sprouts in the spring. In many cases, the damage is not as bad as it originally looked and new growth may sprout out of tissue that you thought was dead.

If dieback has occurred, which is the gradual dying of plant shoots, and your tree has lost shade, protect the unshaded portions of the trunk and branches from the sun with a physical cover or use whitewash. Whitewash should have a 1:1 ratio of latex paint and water. Remove all frosted or mushy fruit that can still be used for snacking or juicing.
