Experimental plot showing Cherry with no weeding or mowing . There are no advantages to this .  The disadvantages are competition for moisture with weeds ; particularly grasses will kill trees and slow growth .  Trees may be swamped by rank vegetation .  Inspection of trees will be difficult .  Ideal habitat for voles which will gnaw at tree bark . Location: Alice Holt , Hampshire , England .
