Metal Tree Guards

Landscaping that includes the growth of trees is not only great for the environment but also makes for a beautiful sight. Our metal tree guards provide an important service by safeguarding young trees from interference. Used to protect them in public spaces such as parks, high streets, playgrounds, and more, they reduce the risk of damage while still leaving room for growth.

They are very simple to install as they simply rest on the ground with spikes at the bottom that can be pushed into the earth for firmer support. Made of steel fabrication with a galvanised finish, they are weather-resistant and durable. We do also offer colour coating in a variety of RAL colours including black, white, blue, brown, burgundy, dark green, grey, and red. This range of colours ensures that you can customize your metal tree guards to suit whatever aesthetic wanted. They come in a rounded flower-shaped design at the top edge. We offer them in an option of 3 or 4 hoops.  

These metal tree guards help to protect vulnerable young trees from interference from animals, children, and even adults who do not realise the damage they can cause. The bars are sufficiently spaced apart to prevent heads getting caught in between, while still keeping the tree visible for the enjoyment of those around.

Constructed with locking nuts, these metal tree guards can later be deconstructed for use elsewhere without harming the tree. They are a simple and economical method of protecting young trees in public spaces and enhancing the chances of their survival and strong growth. They can also be used in farms and gardens where there are plentiful domestic and wild animals around. We currently offer this product in a choice of two heights, either 1500mm or 1870mm, and two diameters, 250mm or 450mm.

Product Description

Tree guards, also known as tree protectors or tree shelters, are essential tools for the care and maintenance of young trees. They provide a range of benefits to promote healthy tree growth and ensure the long-term survival of these valuable natural assets. In this article, we will delve into the importance of tree guards and discuss the various types available in the market, including their materials, sizes, and installation methods.

Why Use Tree Guards?

Tree guards serve several crucial functions that make them a valuable investment in the cultivation and protection of trees:

Protection from Wildlife: Tree guards act as a physical barrier, safeguarding trees against animals such as deer, rabbits, and rodents that may nibble on the tree’s bark, leaves, or branches. This protection is particularly vital for young, vulnerable trees.

Weather Protection: Tree shelters shield young trees from harsh weather conditions, including strong winds, heavy rain, and extreme temperatures. These weather elements can stress or damage young trees, hindering their growth.

Herbicide and Chemical Protection: In agricultural or urban settings, tree guards can prevent accidental contact with herbicides or chemicals used for weed control, which can be harmful to the tree’s health.

Support for Growth: Some tree guards offer structural support to young trees, helping them grow straight and tall by preventing bending or swaying.

Types of Tree Guards

Plastic Tree Guards: These are among the most common types of tree guards. They are usually cylindrical and can vary in height to accommodate different tree sizes. Plastic tree guards are durable, easy to install, and provide excellent protection against wildlife and adverse weather conditions.

Mesh Tree Guards: Mesh tree guards are made of plastic mesh materials and are designed to protect trees from animals and physical damage. They are available in various sizes and can be wrapped around the tree or placed as a surrounding barrier.

Spiral Tree Guards: Spiral guards are coiled plastic or mesh guards that can be easily wrapped around tree trunks. They are particularly useful for protecting against herbicides, rabbits, and other small animals.

Metal Tree Guards: Metal tree guards, typically made of steel, offer robust protection against larger animals, such as deer. They are more durable but can be heavier and require more effort to install.

Installation and Maintenance

Proper installation of tree guards is essential to ensure their effectiveness. Here are some general guidelines for installation and maintenance:

Ensure Adequate Airflow: Be mindful not to enclose the tree too tightly, as this can hinder airflow and lead to fungal diseases. Leave some space for ventilation.

Regular Inspections: Periodically inspect the tree guards to check for any damage or signs of wear. Repair or replace damaged guards as needed.

Weed Control: Keep the area around the tree clear of weeds and grass, as they can grow within the guard and compete with the tree for nutrients and sunlight.

In conclusion, tree guards are indispensable tools for protecting and promoting the growth of young trees. By providing protection from wildlife, harsh weather, and herbicides, these guards play a crucial role in nurturing healthy, thriving trees. When selecting tree guards, consider the specific needs of your trees and the environmental conditions in your area to choose the most suitable type. Proper installation and maintenance will ensure the long-term success of your tree protection efforts..
