Spiral Tree Guard

The Spiral Tree Guard is manufactured by Ansini from 100% recycled PVC, which is a scrap material generated by their plastic packaging activity. It offers simple, cost-effective protection for vulnerable young trees and saplings against a number of common pests and the detrimental effects systemic herbicides.

PVC is a durable, long-lasting plastic that provides four-season protection to a tree, even at high UV exposure levels. Over the years it will gradually break down into minute, inert particles which will not harm the soil around the tree. Ventilation holes can be added to Spiral Tree Guards at no extra cost. These holes promote the faster development of young trees and reduce the effects of mildew and leaf burn.

The Spiral Tree Guard comes in a choice of lengths and diameters to suit every forestry or landscape planting project, whatever the scale. There are three different colours available too - a clear version to enhance growth and green and brown versions which are more aesthetically pleasing in an outdoor setting.
