Vigilis Tree Tube (5/Pack)
Vigilis Tree Tube, translucent, green, twin walled, with pre-threaded zip tie for fastening to stake (stake not included).
Get your newly planted or “volunteer” tree seedlings off to a safe, healthy, and fast-growing start with Vigilis Tree Tubes. (Yes, you place these tall tubes over small seedlings that are 6 to 24 inches tall. They are not wraps to protect the bark of larger trees.) Vigilis Tree Tubes benefit your tree seedlings several ways:
- Protect from rodents, rabbits, and deer
- Reduce moisture stress, resulting in higher survival rates and faster growth
- Shield from herbicide spray, mowers and weed whackers
Vigilis Tree Tubes have all the features you’d expect in a premium grade tree tube:
- Twin-wall corrugated construction for strength with perforated holes for the top two-thirds of the tube. The ventilated top half acclimates the tree to potential harsh winds and the environment which aids trunk and root development
- UV stabilized for years of protection, until your seedlings become healthy young trees that can make it on their own
- Laser perforation line, to the tree tube will split and expand as your trees grow
- Flared rim to prevent bark abrasion to emerging trees
- Pre-threaded zip ties to fasten to the stake (not included, see recommendations below)
Vigilis Tree Tubes protect your seedlings from rodents, rabbits, and deer until the seedlings emerge from the top of the tubes. They are recommended for use on hardwood (broadleaf) seedlings where deer are not a serious threat.
Vented Tree Tubes feature ventilation holes for better air circulation, allowing seedings to harden off for winter more effectively in cold climates. Ventilation has also proven to be better for conifer seedlings.
Diameter varies per tube. Ranges from 70mm to 130mm depending on size selected. Contact us for any additional questions.
