Rabbits chew. The sun scalds. In each case, the result is the same: a badly damaged tree. Tree Guards are an easy way to protect the tender bark of young trees.
These heavy-duty, perforated plastic spirals are easy to use and last for years. Just check them twice a year to make sure they haven’t become too tight and to remove any grass that’s grown inside. Avoid hitting tree guards with string trimmers or other lawn equipment, which can decimate a tree guard and girdle trees — a leading cause of tree mortality. Use tree guards in conjunction with our Typar® Tree Circles as a foundation for healthy trees!
