Rigid Fluteboard Tree Guard - EAGDS159

Many customers call and ask, should we use a tree guard, and what  is the best type of tree guard to use? The short answer is that if you do not have a problem with animals eating your trees then don't go to the bother and expense of putting them on.

The main reason for using a tree guard is to protect the tree  from pests such as rabbits, hares, wallabies and kangaroos. Other advantages of using certain types of tree guards are protecting the tree from herbicide drift, helping to find the trees if weeds get out of control (which you shouldn't allow  to happen), and creating a mini green house environment for the tree (the latter  can often work too well, creating problems inside the guard.) These last benefits will depend on the type of tree guard used.

The cost of guards varies considerably as they will perform  different functions. The lower cost ones include milk cartons, flexible plastic  mesh, rigid plastic mesh, poly sleeve guards, car tyres and home made sisalation guards.

This heavy-duty rigid polypropylene fluteboard tree guard has a life expectancy of up to 3 years and is UV stabilized.

The triangular structure prevents flapping in the wind, and provides protection for seedlings from damaging winds, herbicides and vermin.
