Using a tree shelter offers many advantages that can significantly contribute to the successful growth and development of your tree.

Protection from Animals
Tree shelters act as a physical barrier that can deter animals like deer, rabbits, and rodents from gnawing on the tree’s bark or eating its leaves, thereby preventing damage that could stunt growth or even kill the tree.

Wind and Weather Shield
The shelter serves as a windbreak, reducing the drying effects of wind on the soil and the tree itself. It can also offer some protection against extreme weather conditions like frost or heavy rain.

Enhanced Growth
Many tree shelters create a mini-greenhouse effect, trapping moisture and warmth. This can accelerate the growth rate of the tree, especially in its early stages.

Weed Competition
When used with our mulch mats, tree shelters can make it easier to manage weeds around the base of the tree. By reducing weed competition, the tree has better access to water and nutrients in the soil.

Mechanical Damage
The shelter can protect the young tree from accidental damage due to lawnmowers or other gardening activities.

Easier Maintenance
With a tree shelter in place, it’s easier to spot the tree, reducing the risk of accidental damage. It also makes tasks like applying fertilizers or pesticides more straightforward, as you have a clear target area.

Improved Survival Rates
Overall, the use of tree shelters has been shown to improve the survival rates of newly planted trees, making your planting efforts more successful in the long run.
