TUBEX Nature Standard - Biodegradable

from £1.60

The TUBEX Nature is a next generation tree shelter that is bio based, non toxic and tested to be biodegradable*.

It retains all of the superior features of a Tubex treeshelter whilst introducing biodegradability in its composition.

The benefits of TUBEX nature:

  • Bio-based
  • Non toxic
  • Designed to be Soil Biodegradable**
  • High quality and fit for purpose
  • No end of life costs for removal or recycling

Shelter features:

  • 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.

It is important to install the TUBEX nature shelter windward (facing the prevailing wind). More info here

TUBEX Nature will over time start to degrade and breakdown into water and CO2 by a process of microbiology, rate and time period of bio-degradation depending on soil and climatic conditions. 

Bio-based polymers are materials wholly or partly derived from biomass, such as plants, trees or animals. But not all Bio-based polymers are biodegradable.

All polymers used to manufacture TUBEX Nature have already been tested to be biodegradable and bio-based*.

*All components of TUBEX Nature have been tested and certified to biodegrade, passing the norm 14995:2006 

**Currently under testing for ISO:17556 Soil Biodegradability. Tested against OECD 207 for Earth-worm ecotoxicity and OECD 208 for Plant ecotoxicity - No acute toxicity detected.
