Defender Tree Guards

Defender Tree Guards are a firm favourite with professional foresters. Not only are they easy to install & transport, they provide great protection for young trees. The Defender Tree Guards are constructed of twin-walled polypropylene and come complete with releasable cable ties. The twin-walled construction changes the environment for young trees by creating more humidity to enhance establishment, which in turn creates higher survival rates, saving time and money.

The unique combination of a cylindrical shape and flat pack storage is obviously an advantage when storing or transporting to sites. Another benefit of the Defender being flat packed is that they are not nested inside each other, meaning all tree guards have the same uniform 10cm diameter.

“For large scale planting the Defender can’t be beat. We find them great to work with as they come flat packed, which means we can transport more onto site per trip. This is of great benefit to us as some of our planting is very remote. Along with a great price from ALS, you can’t go wrong.

Sean Edwards, Head Forester, Halifax Estates, East Yorkshire

“The Defender shelters are well priced and easy to assemble. We have seen splendid growth and survival rates which is great to see.
