Tubex Combitubes are the ideal plant protection product for more exposed sites. Comprising a solid base to offer an improved micro-climate for speedy establishment, the Combitube has a ventilated upper section to allow plants to acclimatise to external conditions before emerging from the shelter, which improves both trunk and root development.

Tubex Combitubes are fixed to the ground by using a stake as demonstrated in the picture. They are not included and need to be purchased seperataly.

Combitube Height Stake Required* Protection Against
75cm 90cm Hare, Rabbit, Vole
1.20m 1.20m or 1.35m Roe Deer/Muntjac
1.50m 1.50m Fallow Deer

*It is advisible to use a longer stake for sandier, lighter soils.

The above table clarifies what size Combitube and therefore matching stake you would need to order for the relevant pest proctection.

The Combitube needs fixing to a stake as shown in the picture, the stake needs ordering seperately as it does not come with the Combitube.

The twin wall, cylindrical construction of the Combitube offers superb strength to weight ratio, whilst strengthening rods at the stake area prevent the shelter from tearing. Pre-fitted releasable ties provide quick installation and maintenance.

Tubex Combitubes have a flared rim to minimise stem abrasion and also feature a laser-line that will split to avoid strangulation as the plant grows.

Produced from environmentally harmless polypropylene, Combitubes are UV stabilised to provide between 5 and 7 years of plant protection, the length of which is dictated by site and conditions.

I have 7 x saplings (Oak, Hazel, Common Alder) coming from friend, max height approx 75cm. We do have visiting deer! What would be the best size Combitubes to order, please?

Thank you for your question.

The height of the Combitube will depend on the type of deer that you are protecting against. For Roe deer and Muntjac, you would need a 1.20m Combitube. If you are protecting the plants from Fallow deer, a 1.50m Combitube would be required.

We hope that helps.

What is the optimal height of the combi tube in relation to the tree inside?

Thank you for your question

So, as an example, if you are wanting to protect against deer we would recommend the 1.20m tube, which would be suitable for a 40-60cm tree.

Hope that helps
