The industry standard solid-wall shelter. As well as protecting the tree from browsing by wildlife, the shelter creates a microclimate which helps the tree establish quicker, resulting in higher survival rates in your planting scheme. The tube also promotes higher air moisture within the tube, meaning the tree has a higher chance of survival in drought conditions. The solid wall will also protect the tree from sprayed herbicides. Use a 1.2m tube if you have deer on site, while a 0.6m tube is designed for rabbit protection. The Tubex standard requires a stake to secure it. We stock 1.35m larch stakes for a 1.2m tube, and a 0.75m stake for a 0.6m tube.
