Tree shelters to help your newly planted tree grow
Tree shelters, or tree guards, are a simple, yet crucial product to protect tree saplings and boost survival rates of newly planted trees.
When trees are newly planted, they are vulnerable and need tree guard protection to help them grow and survive. Extreme weather, vermin, herbicide spray and animals – such as deer and rabbit, are all factors that can damage and affect the survival of young tree saplings.
Tree shelters are therefore an essential tool for your tree planting project. In addition to providing protection and boosting tree survival, our tree shelters also help to maximise tree growth by creating a unique micro-climate within each tree shelter.
With government targets of 30,000 hectares of new trees to be planted by 2025, the demand for tree shelters is huge. As a tree shelter manufacturer, we are here to work with the tree planting and forestry sector to ensure tree shelters and tree guards are fully stocked and readily available not just throughout the tree planting season, but throughout the year too.Request your free tree shelter sample
