The benefits of using tree protection around young seedlings are widely known. They help with fast establishment and improved growth rates, protection from nibbling animals, which can stunt a plants growth or transform what should be a tree into a shrub, and they can help protect from land operations such as mechanical weeding and spraying.
The core principles of plant protection apply whether you are planting out a tree, shrub, hedging or vine plant. If you protect your young plants from pests and chemical spraying, whilst at the same time creating a micro-climate that fosters growth, you give your young plants the best chance of not only surviving their early years – but thriving.
