Tubex treeguard mesh tubes protect young trees from browsing animals, and are especially useful for use with 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 mammals, without altering the microclimate around the tree, whilst offering good drainage. A line of weakness along the weld line assists with the tree 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 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.
