Shelterguard Tree Shelters – Tubes
SHELTERGUARD tree shelters protect trees from browsing animals while providing a sheltered environment to encourage strong early growth.
Protect trees from all types of browsing animal
The Tubex shelterguard tubes are available in mutiple heighs (from 0.45m to 1.8m) to protect trees from all type of animals, from rabbits to deers.
Designed to prevent the abraision of the tree stem.
The tubes have a moulded top lipping is fitted to to each tree shelter to prevent stem abrasion and strengthen the tree shelter tube. SHELTERGUARD tree shelters are designed with a staggered weld line which improves drainage, preventing the shelter tube from filling up with water.
Photodegradable plastic netting and top lipping
The film, mesh and top lipping will photodegrade and split as the stem of the growing tree expands to fill the tube, between 5-7 years. The tubes have been specifically designed to photo-degrade in a two stage process, with the polyethylene film lining breaking up first (after approximately three growing seasons), leaving a free draining netting tree guard to continue to provide support and browsing protection.
Low visual impact
SHELTERGUARD treeshelters are coloured olive green as standard which blends in discreetly with the environment. We can also manufacture in brown subject to order quantity.
Manufactured from recycled plastics
SHELTERGUARD tree shelters are manufactured from a recycled plastic mesh with a 12mm mesh aperture and a clear polyethylene film lining for a sheltered micro-climatic environment.
Smooth & flared top lipping to prevent stem abrasion and strengthen the tube
Pre-fitted releasable nylon tie round a reinforced strip. One tie fitted to a 60cm height shelter and two ties on all other sizes
Staggered weld line to assist drainage and act as an inbuilt line of weakness, accelerating splitting of the tubes
Unique combination of mesh and film provides browsing protection, a beneficial microclimate and enables use of herbicide sprays
