The TUBEX Treeguard range of products provide reliable plant protection, enhances growth as well as being designed to blend subtly into the natural environment.
The TUBEX Treeguard range of products are an open mesh product with no plastic film. If you are planting conifers, or any species that requires plenty of air movement around the plant then the Treeguard is the ideal protection option.
Supplied as flat sheets of open mesh which can be formed into a shelter on site.
Ideal for bushy or multi-stemmed planting where it may be difficult to install a pre-formed guard.
To install, wrap the mesh around the plant and affix using cable ties to a stake. Cable ties and stakes are sold separately.
The TUBEX Standard is the world's best known and best selling tree shelter.
Incorporating all the tried and tested TUBEX features to provide enhanced growth and plant protection.
Features and benefits:
- Twin wall, cylindrical construction for best strength to weight ratio.
- Pre-fitted releasable ties for quick installation and maintenance.
- Flared rim to minimise stem abrasion.
- Laser line designed to split to avoid strangulation as the plant grows.
For species that require extra ventilation or for exposed sites you may wish to consider the TUBEX Combitube as an alternative.
