Rabbits chew. The sun scalds. In each case, the result is the same: a badly damaged tree. Tree Guards are an easy way to protect the tender bark of young trees.
Light-weight and heavy-duty! These perforated plastic spirals are easy to use and last for years. Apply just after planting – a time when young trees need protecting most. Adjust the coil throughout the year to make sure it hasn’t become too tight against the trunk and to remove any grass that’s grown inside. Avoid hitting tree guards with string trimmers or other lawn equipment, which can decimate a tree guard and girdle trees – a leading cause of tree mortality.
