TREE TUBES (also called TREE PROTECTORS) are a necessary step towards ensuring the best chance for survival and enhanced growth rates. Survival and fast growth leads to early and abundant mast production. Even if mast production isn’t your goal, initial and long-term survivability most certainly is. Our double walled vented tree tubes are made from premium materials and are engineered to maximize seedling growth and survival. They ship separately from seedlings ground only (usually 2-4 delivery - no expedited available) from our warehouse, so please consider that when ordering and planning installation.
Deer love to eat fresh, tender growth of tree seedlings. Bucks also seem to target young, isolated trees to rub their antlers on. Tree tubes protect seedlings from both forms of deer damage. We want deer to use our trees, but not until they start dropping fruit or acorns, and tree tubes are the ticket for getting past that vulnerable seedling and sapling stage. Even with tubes installed, deer can and will browse the growth as soon as it emerges from the top of the tube, but the growth is usually fast enough to push right by their reach at this stage. If you have a high deer density, we recommend spraying that emerging top growth with a deer repellent, which will discourage their feeding long enough for the growth to bypass their reach. Tree tubes also deter other critters, such as mice and rabbits from chewing on the base of young seedlings.
Tree tubes also serve as a marker and protector, so you can mow or spray the proper herbicide around your trees to discourage competition in the form of weeds or unwanted seedlings.
Aside from protecting your seedlings from damaging agents, the other very important role tree tubes provide is extremely fast growth. Tree tubes act like a tiny greenhouse, which increases the plants photosynthetic and transpiration rates. They also trap and direct moisture directly to the root system each and every day. We usually have greater than 90% + survival when planting our rapid mast seedlings with the addition of tree protectors.
Tree Protector "package" includes a 48" outdoor rated PVC stake.
I received the protectors and the package was crushed flat.sent an email and called and left a voicemail on someone’s phone… no response… moved on… but not ordering anything else… have a nice day
Always top notch!
I have received my blight resistant chestnuts. The came right on schedule and where in great shape. Can’t wait to get them producing in a few years since now I have planted a small grove of them. A few from 2 years ago and the 4 from this planting should make a nice honey hole. So to saw the least the tree protectors are a must and do an incredible job.
Tree protector package
Order arrived on time and in good condition. Tubes were easy to put on tree and secure to the pole. Would recommend.
I have ordered tree proctors from three other places and these are by far the best ones I have gotten. I look forward to ordering some trees from you when they are available. Only thing I would say or ask for is a Notify Me with a text message when trees are available.
