Spiral tree guard are manufactured from recycled PVC and offer a life expectancy of over 4 years, which is sufficient time to get most young trees and hedgerow plants established.
We offer a clear spiral guard and a spiral guard with green tint, both of which are provided without holes in. The difference in colour between the two is purely aesthetic.
The base of plants should be sprayed to suppress weeds and reduce competition for nutrients. Spiral guards help with the process as they prevent herbicide from contact with the plants within.
Except trees (Spiral guards need to be supported by bamboo canes – the plants alone will not support the guards)
