About Tubex Nature

This autumn we will introduce the first product of this new generation of tree shelters. Our first goal for Tubex Nature is to introduce a Tree Shelter that is:

  • Bio Based & Biodegradable*
  • High quality & fit for purpose
  • Excellent light transmission 

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 will depend on soil and climatic conditions. Mulching or burying Tubex Nature at its end of life will significantly increase the rate of this process.

    Our sustainability strategy

    At Tubex, we strongly believe in the benefits that tree shelters bring to the forestry industry and the planet. In 2019 it is estimated that tree shelters saved over 13 Million saplings that otherwise wouldn’t have survived, in the UK alone. However, we are aware that the main challenge that faces the industry is the disposal of tree shelters. That’s why we are moving away from a linear model based on the take-make-waste premise, and strive to move forward towards a Circular economy. Find out more about our sustainability strategy:
