Treeshelters are a vital component when attempting to establish hardwood trees from seedlings. The most critical time of a seedling's life is the first 3-5 years following the planting phase. Treeshelters help these seedlings grow quickly and effectively by preventing harm from wildlife and rodents and protecting them from severe weather conditions.
Developed in the United Kingdom in 1979, TUBEX® is the world leader in the development and manufacturing of treeshelters. Its Standard Treeshelters provide a micro-climate for trees with higher air moisture to enable the plant to survive in dry or drought conditions. They also provide complete protection against animals and herbicides.
