The Field Pro Biodegradable Tree Guard Sleeve is a environmentally friendly option to protect developing tube stock and plants. This product is made from a material that is designed to biodegrade within the environment over a 2-3 year lifespan, in accordance with the requirements of AS4736. However, this is dependent on environmental conditions and browsing animals. Field Pro Biodegradable tree guard has been tested in the field with outstanding results and provides contractors across Australia with a Tree Guard that displays environmental best practice. Sure Gro Tree Max has tested this product in 4 states with 7 different trial partners, across a range of habitats.
Second image shown was taken from a local council planting. The local council member and tree planter explained the following:
“The survival and growth rate of the plants using the Field Pro Bio Tree Guard are the same as the standard corflute guards we use. Some of the guards already had to be removed due to plants outgrowing them. As a result the condition of Field Pro Bio Tree Guard is still good enough to reuse next planting season.”
