Whiptec Ventilated Tree Guard

The Whiptec ventilated tree shelter tubes are constructed from the same material as the standard Whiptec shelters but with one main difference. The Whiptec ventilated shelters have perforated holes for the top two-thirds of the tube. These vents provide an added benefit by helping aid trunk development by allowing them to adjust to the natural wind-rock of the area.

Releasable Cable Ties for the Whiptec Tree Guards

These shelters are designed for more exposed planting sites where there is a large contrast between external conditions and the conditions within the tree tube. The ventilated top half acclimatises the tree to potential harsh winds and the environment whilst the bottom third of the tube, protects the tree from the use of herbicides being sprayed in the surrounding area. Suitable for use in forestry, landscaping, on road verges and for many other applications.

These Whiptec Ventilated Tree Guards come complete with Releasable Cable Ties
