Tubex Shrub Shelters

The Tubex Shrubshelter range is a strong, wider diameter treeshelter, designed to accommodate large and multi-stemmed planting stock. Tubex Shrubshelters will improve survival rates by protecting plants from rabbits, mice and voles. Growth rates may be less rapid than when using narrower diameter treeshelters.

The Tubex Shrubshelter should be well supported with a strong stake to resist strong winds.

Application

Natural regeneration of a seedling usually occurs under the shade of its parent where conditions are characterized by lower light intensities, higher humidity and reduced air movement, all of which combine to reduce planting stress. Tubex Shrubshelters imitate these conditions while providing a dependable approach to plant protection and facilitating forest management. Correctly installed and used Tubex Shrubshelters:

  • Reduce the stresses associated with the seedling transfer from nursery to planting site.

  • Reduce seedling losses caused by animals.

  • Increase rate of seedling survival after planting.

  • Improve overall planting project success.

  • Reduce time spent on inspection and maintenance.

  • Provide cost savings by avoiding the need for fencing and enabling more efficient herbicide applications.
