Blue-X Tree Shelters, 30”, Pack of 100

Pack of 100

Designed to protect seedlings and accelerate early growth, Blue-X Tree Shelters feature patented two-piece construction and create a beneficial microclimate to aid in seedling survival. Each tree shelter is comprised of a single sheet of blue plastic film which is inserted into a blue-tinted poly sleeve. The blue film produces amplified blue light to increase beneficial photosynthetically active radiation and boost tree diameter growth. In addition, the tree shelters block a significant amount of harmful UV light which can damage DNA and hinder growth. The poly sleeve can be removed when the tree shelter is no longer needed, and the plastic film can be stored for reuse. Each tree shelter measures 3-1/2” in diameter and has an outdoor life of 5 years. Price per 100 shelters. Stakes sold separately.

While other brands are unquestionably easier to install, they are cost prohibitive for larger plantings. Assembling the BlueX tubes is time consuming but easy. I had a poor first experience, and all the 48" tubes bent in half in strong winds on the sch 40 PVC stakes, even though they were zip tied to the stakes. I switched it up and put tube over the stake with the tree seedling and zip tied. Perfect with zero issues since. I use a paper hole punch to punch holes for the zip ties when assembling. While other brands are easier to install and of more rigid material, the extra effort needed with the BlueX is worth it for the big cost savings.

Horrible product! I purchased over 200 of these tubes and I am totally disappointed in them. First off it is very time consuming to put the tubes together. Second there is no good way to attach them to the stakes. I tried eveything. Zip ties ,many tapes, rope, u name it I tried it. Third if a strong breeze comes by the fold right over which causes more work for you. Eventually I replaced all of them with stronger tree tubes that came all assembled with reusable zip ties.

These tubes work great to protect young trees and shrubs and the greenhouse effect greatly accelerates growth. However, you need to plan ahead and make sure that they are adequately secured or one wind storm will take them down. We used bamboo. Epic fail.

This product is great for protecting young "bare root" seedlings. We used the 2' tubes to protect 800 seedlings that were planted in April of 2009 for a small reforestation project in NJ. We will leave the product on the trees through the winter of 09/10 through to the next growing season. I do not know how well they withstand UV light but they are well worth the added cost of ensuring that reforestation projects are successful!
