Cheviot Trees is pleased to offer its clients a more sustainable alternative to traditional PVC spiral guards.
Manufactured from sustainable plant based starch - no petrochemical based material.
The CT Bio Spiral guard has a UV stabiliser incorporated at the time of manufacturing to provide a stable service life of 4-5 years.
- 100% plant based - no plastic!
- Tested to meet conformity to EU guidelines
- Environmentally friendly and sustainable.
If the Bio Spirals are left in the environment they will degrade over time due to the bacteria found in soil or due to enzymatic reactions. Alternatively, they can be inserted into an industrial composting unit which will degrade them within 6 months.
CT BIO Board treeshelters are 100% plastic free and 100% compostable in situ.
No end of life costs to remove and recycle!
Manufactured from special water-resistant cardboard with a natural coating to provide additional protection.
Designed with optimum tree growth in mind due to the ventilation and light holes that are punched into the top of the shelter.
Supplied flat for easy storage and efficient handling but easily formed into a shelter in seconds - no tools or fixings required. The shelter is held into position with the use of a stake which neatly fits into a preformed socket. No ties required.
The expected service life of this shelter will vary based on site conditions but we expect in the region of circa 2 years.
The TUBEX nature is a next generation tree shelter that is bio based, non toxic and tested to be biodegradable*.
It retains all of the superior features of a Tubex treeshelter whilst introducing biodegradability in its composition.
The benefits of TUBEX nature:
- Non toxic
- Designed to be Soil Biodegradable**
- High quality and fit for purpose
- No end of life costs for removal or recycling
- Twin wall, cylindrical construction for best strength to weight ratio.
