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.
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.
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.
