Features.

  • Quicker establishment of young trees, improving tree survival
  • Flared rim to minimise damage to emerging trees
  • Lightweight and rigid
  • Resistant to animal grazing
  • Resistant to herbicides and pesticides
  • Resistant to water and microbial degradation
  • Smooth surface to discourage the shelter from being used as a rubbing post
  • Split line that allows the tree shelter to break away when required
  • Reinforced double layer that sits against the stake
  • Translucent and optical colour to support photosynthesis and photomorphogenesis
  • Due to the natural products that are used, there will be variations over time in the colour of the shelters. This adds to the natural look and helps the shelters blend into the countryside
  • Nested in 5 with 50 in a bundle
  • Carefully positioned holes to acclimatise emerging tree
  • Vented or unvented options available
  • Metal ties that degrade over time, positioned 40cm from the bottom of the tube to reduce herbicides getting inside the shelter
  • Starts to break down after 5 years, depending on location
  • No impact on the environment – breaking down as H2O, CO2 and nitrogen, which will, in part, be absorbed by the tree.
