Shrub shelters

Delivered in nests of four, 13-16cms in diameter. 20 in a bundle.

Heights
  • 0.6m: Rabbits
  • 0.75m: Hares
Construction
  • Light and robust for ease of transport and handling
  • Longitudinally rigid so tree shelters can be pushed into the soil
  • Flared rim with a smooth inner surface minimises possible wind abrasion to emerging trees
  • Ideal light transparency and spectrum support photosynthesis and photomorphogenesis (form)
  • Carefully positioned holes help the young tree acclimatise and allow air to circulate
  • Smooth surface discourages animals from using the shelter as a rubbing post
  • Metal ties can be released and are 40cm from the bottom of the tube to prevent herbicides getting
    inside the shelter
Materials
  • British wool
  • A biodegradable polyol made from ethically sourced cashew nutshell liquid and castor oil
  • An innovative biodegradable custom polymer
  • Metal ties
Durability
  • Long-term resistance to water and premature microbial degradation
  • Starts to break down after five years, depending on location, tree canopy, soil type and microbe content
Biodegradability
  • 100% biodegradable
  • pH neutral
  • Ecotoxicity neutral
  • Metal ties degrade over time
Packaging
  • Recyclable strapping
  • Compostable bags

Because we make our shelters from biodegradable materials, they vary in how their colour changes over time. These variations help the shelters blend naturally into the countryside and do not affect how they perform.
