Tree Guard Information Sheet
Tree Guards are increasingly used for the protection of seedling trees. Tree guards help stop animals from damaging or destroying seedlings and can greatly increase the success rate of tree plantings by reducing wind damage. (see picture right)
Tree guards and plant guards are also of great use in public areas, streets and parks to help prevent damage to both new and established trees. Decorative tree guards are available.
It is more efficient to buy tree guards with stakes supplied as the stakes will be designed for the specific guard.
Types of Tree Guards
- Plastic tree guards
Economical UV stabilised plastic ‘sleeves’, best suited to seedling trees, they can help with growth by increasing warmth and humidity as well as preventing rabbits from eating new growth. Usually fixed with bamboo or hardwood stakes, these are the cheapest form of tree guard.
- Corflute tree guides
A more robust and rigid tree guard than lightweight plastic. Installed with a hardwood stake, provide stronger protection from rabbits and the animals. They are easier to reuse and as they come in one piece with flexible seams they can be laid flat for storage. Also recomended for use close to housing as they do not make a noise in strong winds,
- Steel tree guards
Found in commercial applications and widely used in street plantings to prevent mechanical damage. Usually a permanent fixture.
- Mesh trees guards
Usually a flexible plastic mesh that comes in rolls, cut to size and attached to a timber stake driven into the ground. Flexible, allows light and rain in, provides for good air circulation. Steel mesh is also available
