Tree Seedling Protection Nets and Protector Tubes - Tree Shelters - Tree Mats

 

Rigid Seeding Protection Nets & Protector Tubes

Many acres of newly planted tree seedlings have been destroyed due to animal damage. Seedling mortality can be halted by using protective barriers. Seedling protectors have years of successful long term protection from deer, elk, mountain beaver, rabbits, gophers, and other rodents. Seedling protectors were originally developed for Douglas Fir seedlings in the Pacific Northwest to physically prevent animals from reaching the growing plant. These efficient protectors have grown in popularity with foresters, businessmen and weekend planters.

rigid seedling protector tube

Rigid Seedling Protector Tubes are an inexpensive and effective method which greatly reduces clipping and browsing on dormant and growing tree seedlings. Rigid seedling protectors are made out of photo degradable material which deteriorates in about two years. Rigid seedling protectors are designed so that seedling height growth and form are not impaired, and are non hazardous to the forest ecosystem, domestic animals, or man.

Biodegradable materials can be added to ensure the tubes will degrade without exposure to ultraviolet light. Please call for price quote.

BEST IN TREE GROWTH & SURVIVAL

HEAT PROBLEM SOLVED

Tree Pro - Miracle Tube
Miracle Tube tree shelters were introduced in 1999 to compete with the tube-type tree shelter. However, Tree Pro designers took great pains to make sure the problems associated with tube-type shelters were avoided

The the designers exceeded beyond their wildest expectations is attested to by Miracle Tube's top performance in independent growth and survival tests against other tube-type shelters.

After planting the tree in accordance with proper tree planting directions, pound or press the stake into the ground at a distance from the tree equal to about one-half the diameter of the protector.

Tree Pro designers knew from prior experience with the Tree Pro tree protector design that excessive heat retention was the cause of most of the problems of other shelters. They therefore formulated a polyethylene material that had just the right color and density to promote good tree health.

Provided in a nest of five tubes ranging in diameter from 3.4 " to 4.75".

EASIER MAINTENANCE

 

Tree Pro - Tree Protector
Tree Pro is the most versatile design in the industry.

Because it can be expanded to achieve larger diameters, there is almost no limit to the size of tree or plant it can protect.

They have, in fact, been used to protect evergreens, grape vines, strawberry and blueberry plants, and even tomato plants.

After planting the tree in accordance with proper tree planting directions, pound or press the stake into the ground at a distance from the tree equal to about one-half the diameter of the protector.

Because Tree Pros can be easily removed, they can be reused elsewhere once they've done their job, a significant cost advantage over tubes.

Because they can be opened up, it's easier to perform maintenance on the tree without removing the protector or disturbing/damaging the plant.

Tree Pro - Weed Mat .

Weeds are everywhere: on lawns, in flower gardens, among the tomato plants, wherever you don't want them to be. Left uncontrolled, weeks can starve out young seedlings. They're more aggressive, more prolific and they grow faster.

Weeds absorb water and nutrients, robbing your trees of crucial life-sustaining elements just when they need them most. Weeds can even outgrow your plants, thereby depriving them of much needed sunlight.

If you fertilize without first removing weeds, you are fertilizing the weeds instead.

Spraying herbicide is risky business. You could damage, even destroy the trees, if your workers aren't careful. A simple shift in the wind could mean a bunch of dead trees. Besides, chemical solutions are rarely the best solution.

Weed mats are environmentally friendly. They don't leach into the soil and end up in the water table. They won't blow away in the wind and poison your neighbor's flowers.

Weed Pro retains moisture 3 to 6 weeks longer than other mats that are porous.

The Importance of Weed Control

Weeds and grasses grow faster than planted seedlings – taking nutrients from the soil around your seedlings and blocking the sunlight they need in order to grow.

In order for your seedlings to survive and grow, you must aggressively control weeds and grasses until your seedlings are safely established.

Several types of weed control can be effective:

1 – Herbicide spraying (provided you protect your seedlings from contact herbicides with Jump Start™ Treeshelters)

2 – Mechanical cultivation

3 – Mulching with organic material such as wood chips

4 – Weed mats – both organic and synthetic

Caution: Mowing is not weed control! Mowing allows your seedlings to get more sunlight, and can reduce rodent habitat, but mowing does NOT prevent weed roots from absorbing the nutrients your seedlings need (in fact, mowing invigorates grass so it steals more nutrients!).

All forms of weed control have pro’s and con’s. It’s a matter of optimizing the pro’s, minimizing the con’s, and choosing the right weed control method for your needs. NO MATTER WHICH METHOD OF WEED CONTROL YOU CHOOSE, THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO DO IT, AND DO IT WELL!
