Suregreen's Tree & Shrub Shelters

 Tree shelters are indispensable tools for nurturing optimal tree growth and fostering thriving landscapes. At Suregreen, we understand the significance of providing reliable protection and conducive environments for tree planting projects. Our comprehensive selection of tree shelters encompasses a variety of options to suit your needs and preferences. We are proud to offer leading brands such as Tubex, Vigilis and Defender guards.

Suregreen's tree shelters serve as robust shields against a myriad of potential hazards, including wind damage, grazing animals, herbicides, and more. They also facilitate the creation of microclimates that lead to accelerated growth and development of trees and shrubs.

Key Considerations:

In choosing the right tree shelter, it’s important to consider the performance during key 3 stages. Stage 1: Installation. Stage 2: In-situ. Stage 3: Disposal/ removal.

  1. Installation: It's imperative that tree shelters are lightweight and easy to install, ensuring convenience and efficiency during deployment. For example, our Defender shelters are ingeniously designed to arrive flat-packed, guaranteeing hassle-free transportation. Likewise, Tubex and Vigilis shelters come nested, further enhancing their transportability.
  2. Most growers require tree shelters to last up to 5 years, and be durable against wind, animals and other dangers. While durability is paramount, flexibility is equally essential to accommodate the evolving needs of growing plants. Suregreen's tree shelters strike the perfect balance, offering sturdy construction without compromising on flexibility. This ensures reliable support and protection throughout the growth cycle of trees and shrubs.
  3. Removal/ end of tree shelter life cycle. At Suregreen, we are committed to environmental stewardship. We recognise the importance of responsible disposal at the end of a tree shelter's lifespan. Our biodegradable tree shelter options are tested for durability while offering the added benefit of eco-friendly decomposition. This makes them the ideal choice for areas where shelter collection is challenging or impractical.

Product Range:

Explore our extensive range of tree shelters, including standard shelters, vented shelters for enhanced airflow, and innovative spiral shelters that expand alongside tree growth. We proudly feature leading brands such as Tubex and Vigilis, ensuring premium quality and performance.

Alongside this, we sell tree planting 'accessories' such as stakes and bamboo canes to support the shelters, tree ties to secure the shelters to supports, mulch mats and more.Whether you're embarking on a large-scale reforestation project or simply planting a few trees in your backyard, Suregreen's tree shelters provide the reliability and versatility you need to nurture thriving landscapes. Browse our collection today and invest in the future of greener, healthier environments.

 

Traditional vs vented tree shelters and which one to choose: 

Vented tree shelters are designed to allow air circulation, they typically have slits or vents along the sides or top of the shelter around the tree while still providing protection from herbivores and the elements. Vented tree shelters are often used in situations where air circulation is particularly important, such as in areas with high humidity or where trees are prone to pests or diseases that thrive in stagnant air.

Standard tree shelters, on the other hand, are solid, enclosing structures that provide a completely enclosed space around the tree. They offer a high level of protection from herbivores and the elements, but do not allow for air circulation. Standard tree shelters are often used in areas where herbivore damage is a major concern, or in situations where trees need to be protected from extreme weather conditions, such as high winds or extreme temperature fluctuations.

So, which type of tree shelter is best for you? It really depends on your specific needs and the conditions in your area. If you're planting trees in an area with high humidity or where pests and diseases are a concern, a vented tree shelter may be a good choice to help promote air circulation and reduce the risk of these problems.

On the other hand, if you're planting trees in an area with heavy herbivore pressure or extreme weather conditions, a standard tree shelter may be a better choice to provide the highest level of protection.

Ultimately, the decision between vented and standard tree shelters will depend on the specific needs of your trees and the conditions in your area. Both types of tree shelters can be effective in helping young trees grow and thrive, so it's important to consider your options carefully and choose the one that best meets your needs.

The science behind biodegradable tree shelters, understanding the process of biodegradation:

Vigilis-Bio Tree Shelters are 100% soil biodegradable. They are made from a blend of potatoes, wood and corn and a custom biodegradable polymer. The biodegradation process involves the breakdown of the polymer material into smaller, simpler compounds. This process typically occurs when the polymer is exposed to the elements and is broken down by microorganisms and the action of heat, moisture, and sunlight.

The rate at which a tree shelter breaks down will depend on factors such as the specific material used, the environmental conditions, and the presence of other substances.

By using a biodegradable tree shelter, you can protect your trees and help to minimize plastic waste in the forestry industry. Biodegradable tree shelters are a sustainable and environmentally friendly option that can be used to protect young trees as they grow.
