Tubex flat packed mesh guards are plastic mesh tubes that have been flattened and can be easily re-formed to form a tree tube guard on site, providing logistical benefits.
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.
The mesh guard is simply opened up and should be supported by either two bamboo canes or a stake.
The pre-formed nature of the tube means that there is no requirement for joining or stapling, which is necessary when using a mesh roll or cut pieces.
We offer flat packed shelterguard mesh guards with a height of 1.20m and 1.80m, with a diameter of 20cm.
Cable ties need to be purchased separately for flat packed mesh guards.
1.20m or 1.35m
