Vigilis Tree Shelters
Vigilis tree shelters offer excellent value and are exactly what you need to get your seedlings off to the right start.
Vigilis shelters are rigid, twin-walled, cylindrical tubes with a flared upper rim to limit abrasion on young trees. In addition to providing physical protection, the shelters provide a micro-climate to help seedlings develop strong roots while providing protection from browsing animals.
The primary purpose of our tree shelters is to protect the tree from voles, rabbits, deer, and other common pests. The micro-climate provided for trees results in stronger initial establishment and a much higher tree survival rate. These conditions also help to increase air moisture within the tree shelter which can reduce water stress, ensuring the tree can last longer during drought conditions.
Vigilis tree shelters come with pre-fitted releasable zip ties that fix to the tree stakes to increase stability. The polypropylene twin-walled tree protection tubes are solid and provide protection from herbicides so that areas around them can be sprayed to deter weed growth.
