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.
The TUBEX Vinewrap was originally designed for the viticulture market but this product has been adopted by Cheviot Trees as an entry level protection solution for conifers or for species that find the TUBEX Easywrap or Spiral guards a bit cramped.
In the past our clients have requested a cost effective protection product for commercial conifers such as Scots Pine, Douglas Fir, etc. A damaged bud due to rabbit / hare damage often results in a tree with poor form and subsequent loss of yield.
Twin wall polypropylene construction with a vertical split which produces a natural overlap. To install, simply slide the product over the bamboo cane and plant.
A bamboo cane if required to support this product.
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.
