  • TUBEX Standard

    £0.98
    from £0.75

    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.

  • TUBEX Combitube

    £1.28
    from £1.07

    The TUBEX Combitube has all the design features of a Standard shelter but also offers increased ventilation in the form of a number of 4mm perforations at the top of the shelter.

    TUBEX Combitube shelters are designed for more exposed sites where there is a greater contrast between growing conditions within the shelters and those without.

    Ideally suited for Beech, Oak, Wild Cherry and Lime as these species require a more ventilated environment.

    Features and benefits include:

    • 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.

  • TUBEX Voleguard

    £0.38
    from £0.29

    TUBEX Voleguards help to minimise potentially fatal damage caused by voles and mice such as bark stripping.

    They are a tightly rolled plastic cylinder which is split vertically and designed to hold it's unique shape and retain sufficient overlap to enable the VOLEGUARD to expand as the tree grows.

    Features and benefits include:

    • Manufactured from high gauge brown polypropylene which does not harm the environment.
    • Rigid design that provides high strength and low weight.

    Voleguards are self supporting but a cane is often recommended for support and to prevent pivoting. A bamboo cane of 450mm height is sufficient although some of our clients prefer using a 900mm height to provide greater visibility in the field to aid future maintenance.
