Plant Protection;

  • Option 1 (Budget); Spiral guards (clear no holes) 60cm x 50mm dia with supporting cane 90cm x 12/14lbs.

  • Option 2; Tubex tree shelters 60cm x 73-105mm dia. With supporting stake 75cm x 25mm².

Whilst the spiral guard and cane is the more cost effective from of plant protection initially, please be aware that the ongoing maintenance costs may be higher in comparison to tree shelters and stakes. The tree shelter and stake is a far more rigid product offering greater longevity.

  • 50 plants and sundries (covers approx. 312m² at 2.50m spacings)

  • 100 plants and sundries (covers approx. 624m² at 2.50m spacings)

  • 250 plants and sundries (covers approx. 1560m² at 2.50m spacings)

  • 500 plants and sundries (covers approx. 3120m² at 2.50m spacings)

Prior to planting your woodland it is essential to plan the layout and detail where species are to be planted, for example the larger growing species should be concentrated towards the centre with the medium sized trees and shrubs planted towards the woodland and ride edges.

Following planting make sure to fit the protection that day, so as not to leave any plants exposed to potential rabbit damage overnight.

For spirals and canes, insert the cane into the ground next to the plant and then place the spiral guard over the plant and cane. The only reason for the cane is to hold the spiral in place as this will not be supported by the plant.

For tree shelters and stakes, knock the stake in next to the plant leaving enough space for the shelter to go over the plant as the stake goes on the outside of the guard. Place the guard over the plant with the ratchet tie over the stake. Pull the tie tight around the stake to secure.

Planting is the first element of establishing a woodland; be sure to have a maintenance programme in place for the first three years.
