Tree shelters

Delivered in nests of five, 7-11cms in diameter. 50 in a bundle.

Heights
  • 0.6m: Rabbits
  • 0.75m: Hares
  • 1.2m: Roe and Muntjac Deer
  • 1.5m: Fallow Deer
  • 1.8m: Red Deer and Sika Deer
Construction
  • Light and robust for ease of transport and handling
  • Longitudinally rigid so tree shelters can easily be pushed into the soil to seal off the base
  • 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
  • 100% British wool
  • A polyol made from ethically sourced natural and renewable products
  • An innovative custom polymer designed and made exclusively by NexGen
  • Unique, releasable, degradable metal ties made from British steel
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
  • 5-year useful lifetime warranty
Degradability
  • Biodegradable and environmental degradation
    • Breaks down by microbial (fungal, algae, mosses and other soil organisms) and environmental degradation (UV, rain, ice and wind)
    • Ecotoxicity tested and pH neutral
  • Releasable metal ties that 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.
