The TUBEX Easywrap is a cost effective alternative to a Spiral Guard, providing protection against small animal browsing and herbicides.
Manufactured with a vertical split and a natural overlap which provides an enhanced growing environment.
A bamboo cane is required to support this product.
The TUBEX Easywrap can be slipped over the plant and the bamboo cane, and will expand as the plant grows.
We also supply the TUBEX Vinewrap which is basically a wider diameter version of the Easywrap and provides extra space for the plant - well worth considering.
For exposed sites consider using the TUBEX Ecostart which is pre-fitted with a releasable tie.

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.
