This may sound crazy, or just plain lazy, but does anyone have an implement that will trim around the trees without tearing them up? I've got my place looking pretty good now, except for the brush and grass around each tree. When I try to get close I usually wind up tearing up some shallow roots, or worse, gouging the tree. I'm talking a lot of trees. I know I will probably have to break down and actually do some real lawn work: walking around with a weedeater. Just thought I'd ask if there is an easier way.

Hey Bill- In the spirit of Keith's reply, another low-tech suggestion (don't you hate it when you've got the toys and someone suggests a simpler way to complete the task?I humbly suggest some sheep - 4 would probably be more than enough, 2 might even be plenty. We've got 6 - 2 yearlings and 4 ranging from 5 to 12 weeks. They're in a fenced area created with 350' of Electronet fencing while we clear for pasture. The fence is moved weekly (takes 15 minutes) 'cause they totally finish everything there is. I don't have to mow, and they don't have to stay in the barn.Which means less time on the tractor. Which means..........If only these were the hardest decisions we had to make.Have fun.

Well, it will hurt - but only for a day or two. Age will determine whether it is the first day or the second!!! Wink yeah right

Now I thought with about 100 trees on my property that this was a legitimate question. Plus I am planning on putting in an orchard of pecan and fruit trees. That's a lot of weedeating... Actually I like the sheep idea. I have been thinking about some goats for a while but do not have the outer fence secure enough. The movable electric fence might be the best answer. But I still need to figure out how to trim those hedges.

Better solution. Buy some Round-Up, and spray a 12" circle around each tree. No grass, no need to hit the tree with the tractor, and no need to walk around. Do it once a year. Just be sure to protect the tree - bark, leaves, roots.If you don't like chemicals, buy some Typar Housewrap (Dark colour) and put a 24" square or circle around each tree, and pile some bark, wood chips etc. on it to keep it down. Water gets through, weeds can't.Beats walking around with the weed whacker.Anyone tried invisible fencing on sheep? Works for my neighbours dogs, thought it might work for sheep as well. Don't want electric fence wire strung around my yard, but invisible fencing might be just the ticket. Are sheep smart enough to figure it out?Big G

Regretably, we need to use the ElectroNet fence as much to keep predators (ie. coyotes) out as to keep the sheep and goats in. In terms of looking at the fencing, we've found that from 75' away you can barely see it. And this is with white fence; there's a green/gray version that I suspect is even less obvious.As far as the invisible fencing goes, seems like a real interesting idea. As to whether the sheep are smart enough to figure it out - you know the old saying about "The grass is always greener.....". I suspect if we let ours know , they'd wait 'til we left the barn and would proceed to roll around in hysterics. Yeah, they are smart - they just try not to let on too often

Yes,there is a better way,we have a local fellow who has patended a string-trimer that mounts to the outside edge of a 3-point or a mid mount mower.I don't own one,but I think this set-up works very well.I can't even tell you how it's driven,but I work with this mans sister and I will get imfo from her and pass it on to you shortly.I've seen these trimmers work around fences with barb wire and they do a slick job.I'm sure trimming around trees would be a snap.
