Tubex shelterguard mesh tubes provide a sheltered environment to encourage early growth, whilst protecting against browsing animals. The shelterguard mesh tubes are manufactured from recycled plastic mesh with a 12mm mesh aperture, and a clear polythene film lining that creates a micro-climatic environment for plants.

The clear polythene film provides added protection from wind and herbicide spray, and allows light to penetrate, acting like a greenhouse to encourage early tree growth.

Tubex shelterguard mesh tubes will photo-degrade in two stages. The polythene film lining will degrade after approximately three growing seasons, to leave the free draining mesh tube to continue to protect against animal browsing and offer support to the plant. The shelterguard mesh tube will photo-degrade after five to seven years, as the stem of the tree expands.

The shelterguard mesh tubes have a moulded top lip to prevent abrasion of the tree stem and a staggered weld line, to help with the drainage of water from inside the tube.

You will find that the Tubex shelterguard mesh tubes are supplied in nests of 4, ranging from diameters of 80-110mm. These need to be separated from one another prior to fitting. The tubes also come with pre-fitted ties, for easy installation with square sawn tree stakes.

We offer Tubex shelterguard mesh tubes in a range of sizes; from 60cm up to 1.80m.
