EASIER TREE SHELTER MAINTENANCE
When choosing a protector ask yourself if you will be doing post planting maintenance. If you are Tree Pro has no equal. Because they can be opened up, it's easier to perform maintenance on the tree without removing the protector or disturbing/damaging the plant.
Tree Pro is the most versatile design in the industry. Tree Pro is a flat sheet that forms into a tube. This design allows multiple Tree Pros to be attached using our Zip Ties to expand to achieve larger diameters, there is almost no limit to the size of tree or plant it can protect.
Tree Pro Tree Protectors have, in fact, been used to protect evergreens, grape vines, strawberry, blueberry plants, and even tomato plants
After planting the tree in accordance with proper tree planting directions, pound or press the stake into the ground at a distance from the tree equal to about one-half the diameter of the protector.
Because Tree Pro Shelters can be easily removed, they can be reused elsewhere once they've done their job, a significant cost advantage over tubes.
We put them on Chestnut trees this spring and the kit was complete with all we needed. The tubes look to be very good quality as well.
