Tree Hugger™ guards are a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to plastic tree shelters or guards. Manufactured in the UK from organic cotton encapsulated in renewable pine tree rosin, the Tree Hugger™ Biodegradable Shelters have a minimum 5-year lifespan giving the tree valuable protection during its critical establishment period.
Common damage by wild mammals - Voles
Voles are typically found in rough grass swards that provide cover from predators. Levels of damage vary, but mostly occur in cyclical years of population abundance driven by plentiful food. They can attack trees at any time but particularly late winter to spring, typically gnawing bark at the base of the stem. Trees may recover from minor damage but will die if ring-barked.
Because these vole guards are made entirely from natural, organic materials they will completely biodegrade at the end of their useful lifespan meaning that the removal of single use plastic shelters is no longer required, saving time and money.
The woven material structure provides strong protection against damage from grazing animals, such as voles and mice. The woven strength allows the guards to be pushed into the soil slightly and act as an effective barrier.
