Animals, like rabbits and voles, can cause damage to young trees and saplings, although this can change if you protect your trees using suitable tree guards. These simple tube-like guards are easy to use with single stemmed seedlings, transplants, as well as hedgerows. In addition to providing protection from pests through sheltered environments, they offer protection from herbicide spraying, and they also provide support. Tree guards include holes to facilitate ventilation, and they expand along with the stem of the tree. Most tree guards on eBay measure 60 cm in length. However, you have options when choosing diameter, which include 38 mm and 80 mm to 100 mm.
You can find tree guards made with 100 per cent recycled photodegradable PVC. Variants with green tints not only minimise visual intrusiveness, but they also minimise scorching of leaves. Variants that come with generous overlaps offer enhanced browsing protection. Do not worry about damage to your plants; get them low-cost protection instead.
