Tubex tree shelters are the most popular option for plant protection. The tubes provide plants with an improved microclimate to give them the best possible start, whilst encouraging enhanced growth and increasing survival rates. These are perfect for the bare rooted plants that we sell.
Tree Shelter Height
1.20m or 1.35m
*It is advisible to use a longer stake for sandier, lighter soils.
Tubex Tree Shelters offer protection against animal damage and will also ensure that herbicide does not come into contact with plants during spraying.
The shelters themselves consist of a twin-wall construction, with a flared rim to help reduce abrasion. Pre-fitted, releasable ratchet ties make installation easy, and the use of Tubex laserline will allow the tree to break free.
Whilst Tubex Tree Shelters are a slightly more expensive form of plant protection upfront, the longevity of the tubes and their firm, rigid nature, will provide evident benefits and reduced costs in the long run. Tubex Tree Shelters with square sawn stakes will stand true and firm against young trees that become top heavy and will continue to support their growth.
We offer these Tubex Tree Shelters in a range of heights, from 60cm up to 1.8m.
You will find that the Tubex tree shelters are supplied in nests of 5, ranging from the smallest to the largest diameter as listed - these need to be separated from one another prior to fitting.
