The TreeProtect Biobased tree trunk protector is an inexpensive, effective and reliable method to protect trees against mowing damage and rodents.
In addition to the FDA certified plastic version, the well-known tree trunk protector is also available in Biobased Plastic. Biobased Plastic is produced using the residual waste from sugar cane and is also called green polyethylene. The use of residual waste from sugar cane creates a new and sustainable alternative to standard polyethylene.
The Biobased tree trunk protector is fully recyclable. Green polyethylene can be mixed with standard polyethylene. This allows tree trunk protectors based on sugar cane to be recycled in the same process as the current PE tree protectors. The base material can therefore be reused frequently.
The tree trunk protector is available in the green, black and brown. The trunk protector is 21 cm tall and 36 cm wide. Very easy to install and protects trunks up to a diameter of 11 cm. For larger trees, two or more trunk protectors can easily be connected to each other. Every year the trunk protector must be loosened to prevent ingrowth.
TreeProtect Biobased has optimum aeration holes. This provides the tree trunk with sufficient air and light. These aeration holes prevent insect infestation and bark rot.
