Biodegradable Tree Shelters – 1.2m Tall

The 120cm biodegradable tree shelters are made from a light brown custom soil biodegradable polymer, which is UV stabilized. Used to protect trees plants in the first years of growth from damage caused by grazing animals (rabbits, hares etc.), strimming and weed killer overspray.

These tree shelters can be easily transported, stored, installed and removed, the shelters use pre-fitted biodegradable cable ties as a fixing system where a 25mm square stake or a bamboo cane are fitted (both the stake and bamboo canes are sold separately). Designed with a flared upper rim avoid rubbing against the plant stem, the shelters have a laser line seam that allows the shelter to split away as the plant grows which prevents strangulation.

These biodegradable tree shelters provide around five years of growing protection and take up to two years to fully biodegrade, although this depends on site conditions. There is no need to collect, break up or bury the tree shelter as it slowly fragments and breaks down into the soil providing a food source for soil microorganisms. All that is left after this process is Biomass, Water and Minerals.

Tree shelters can increase growth by inducing a micro-climate inside of the shelter, whilst also contributing to natural pruning. The twin-walled tube construction makes this shelter very durable and easy to use. Plastic tree shelters are also available. We can supply any amount of Tree Shelters but for larger quantities, please call or contact us via E-mail.

  • How to fit? : Install tree stake next to planted tree, place shelter over the tree and slide cable ties over the stake. Pull cable ties firmly to secure tree shelter to the stake.
  • What happens as the tree grows inside? : Eventually the shelter will split along the laser line to prevent it strangling the tree.
  • How does the tree shelter biodegrade? : There is no need to collect the tree shelter like traditional plastic alternatives.
