Constructed of tough yet flexible UV inhibited polyethylene and polypropylene material. These diamond mesh tubes protect young seedlings from nibbling intruders for up to five years. Allow young seedlings to grow and slowly photodegrade once seedlings have grown to a point of establishment. For best results, install tubes at time of planting and cover entire seedling. Allow 10” to 12” of tubing to extend above tree to compensate for later growth and tree top protection. Install optional bamboo stakes with each tube for support. Stakes sold separately. Pack of 250.
