Problems & Benefits
Problems & Benefits
Protection from browsing pressures
Tree shelters shield young trees from destruction or damage by herbivores such as rabbits, hares and deer. Young trees would be an attractive and easy nutritious meal for these animals if unsheltered.
Repeated weed control
Weeds compete with newly planted trees for the nutrients, water and sunlight, often growing much faster than new saplings and overgrowing them. An extremely successful management tool is repetitive use of herbicide sprays. These sprays can cause great damage to a tree, so providing shelter to avoid contamination, loss of sapling and money is important.
With extreme climate fluctuations, the environment can be tough for young trees. As we are providing a microclimate to maximise growth, the tree shelters protect trees from harsh weather conditions in their early days to help establish strong root systems and trunk developments.
Vigilis Tree Shelters offers a range of protection solutions to optimise tree establishment. We manufacture and supply standard, vented and biodegradable tree shelters to suit your requirements.
