Client feedback

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.”
