SHELTERGUARD™ treeshelters give the seedling added shelter from wind, animals and herbicide spray; allow light to penetrate; and act as a greenhouse encouraging good, strong, early growth. A moulded top lipping is fitted to each tree shelter to prevent stem abrasion and strengthen the shelter tube. The SHELTERGUARD™ treeshelters were designed to photo-degrade in a two-stage process, with the polyethylene film breaking up first (after approximately three seasons), leaving a free draining, netting tree guard to continue to provide support.
