“NexGen Tree Shelters are predominantly made from wool, together with some clever, innovative, bio-based chemistry”

NexGen Tree Shelters is the result of many years of research and development by leading experts in their field.

Our trees shelters have been designed to be biodegradable. NexGen Tree Shelters are made from British wool, together with some clever, innovative, bio-based chemistry.

Our mission is to reduce the environmental impact of plastic in our countryside whilst supporting the fight against climate change.

The world is rightly demanding that we use fewer plastic materials. It is NexGen’s goal to replace the use of polypropylene tree shelters and nylon cable ties with an environmentally friendly, viable alternative. Our tree shelters are designed to last 5 years* before they start to break down as H2O, CO2 and nitrogen.

*Depending on location.

Making a difference

To date, over 700 million plastic tree shelters have been used in the UK countryside. Some estimates put this number as high as 2 billion. Tree shelters play an essential part in establishing and protecting young trees but we need to stop putting plastic into the countryside.

NexGen Tree Shelters provide a micro-environment to support early tree growth while protecting trees from grazing herbivores and the use of harmful herbicide sprays.

It is NexGen’s goal to replace the use of polypropylene tree shelters along with their nylon ties within 5 years.
