Tubex 4' Tree Shelters are designed with an exclusive twin-walled construction to provide maximum protection from animal browse damage, wind, chemical spray, and equipment for 5–7 years. In addition, the greenhouse environment created by each shelter promotes seedling growth.
Tubex Tree Shelters come with durable white oak stakes and work great in the field or the yard. Each pack of 5 includes shelters ranging from 2.5" to 4" in diameter. The 4' shelters are recommended to protect against larger animals such as deer. Tubex 2' Tree Shelters are also available to protect against smaller animals like rabbits.
