Tubex treeguard mesh tubes for shrubs protect young shrubs from browsing animals, particularly rabbits, and are suitable for species that do not require the sheltered environment of a shrub shelter, but retain the need to be protected from browsing animals. The treeguard mesh tubes for shrubs are especially useful for evergreen species, which can often grow too rapidly in an enclosed tree shelter, resulting in them becoming top heavy and unstable.
The strong, open mesh structure, manufactured from recycled plastics, offers protection from browsing animals, without altering the microclimate around the shrub, whilst offering good drainage. A line of weakness along the weld line assists with the shrub in breaking free from the guard once established, and a smooth, flared top prevents stem abrasion.
You will find that the Tubex treeguard mesh tubes for shrubs are supplied in nests of 4, ranging from diameters of 130-160mm or 170-200mm, depending on the size purchased. 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 treeguard mesh tubes for shrubs with a height of 60cm.
