Tree guards and spray guards are an excellent option for plant protection including tree protection and seedling protection from sprays, wind, frosts, and pests such as rabbits and believe it or not – pigs!
At Poly Logic Plastics we manufacture this versatile plastic film sleeve to act as root stock guards (our smallest size ‘Mini Guards” without ventilation holes), small and large size tree guards and protectors (with ventilation holes), spray guards, and general plant pest protectors, to allow for air flow and accommodate smaller and larger sized vulnerable trees and shrubs.
These tree, seedling and shrub plastic film protection guards are an efficient and economical choice of protection from sprays, pests and winds. This product is long lasting, durable and effective with UV protection. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Our happy and satisfied customers report that it does the job it is designed to do and more. A recent customer feedback focused on two aspects new to us. 1: the micro-climate extending the growing season of the plant (including frost protection) and 2: it was deterring wild pigs from rooting around the base of the plants, opting to root around the plastic edge instead! While this wouldn’t be a product guarantee of course – it does add another dimension for our marketing!
