Product Overview

The 8 in. Tree Trunk Protector is a durable plastic shield that coils around a young tree. It expands as the tree grows, creating a long-lasting physical barrier against the ravages of lawn movers and string trimmers. The attractive, natural brown color blends in with its surroundings, reflecting away the hot sun's rays to prevent bark splitting while allowing the tree to breath.

Hello there. Sorry about that! It's 4" across and 8" down. Thank you!

Is this easy to cut?

Asked by ms April 29, 2020

Answers

The tree protector is made of durable, weather-resistant plastic. It's made to coil around the tree so it can expand as it grows, so it probably won't cut very easily.

Does it come in taller sizes, like 3 ft. or 4ft.?

What are the “ravages of lawn movers” referred to in the product overview?

Weed wackers and lawn mowers can tear the bark at the foot of the tree trunk, even killing a young tree.

I've had one of these on a tree for many years, including winters in Buffalo, NY. It has held up fine.

Will this tree trunk protector fit a tree that is & inches wide at the bottom

if the tree has an 8 inch diameter I doubt it will be effective.

Can this material be purchased in rolls?

Asked by Farmer January 11, 2016

Answer

It comes in one size,, and one roll per unit. So it is 8" tall and has limitations on the diameter of the trunk it will cover. Should be on problem with new trees up to say 3"

I used this product to protect an umbrella stand from being destroyed by our little puppy. It worked so I'm sure it would work to protect a tree trunk too.

Even though I LOVE squirrels, I hate them chewing the bark off of my newly planted trees. All the signs I put out there for the squirrel, such as "NO CHEWING" made no difference. I came to one conclusion...squirrels can't read. These protectors also have holes in them so you can use ropes and stakes to stabilize the tree until it is established.

This might be a me problem and not a problem with the product. But they don’t sit flush with the ground. I bought these to protect my tree trunks from our rabbits, but they’re able to push it up to chew on the bark. I would recommend a gate instead if you’re using this to protect against animals.

We tried to use these to prevent deer attacks on our new fruit trees. Because they are so short, they weren't affective and we lost another tree. These are better suited for trees that simply need to be protected from weed wackers.

Just what I needed to protect my new little saplings from the bunnies chewing on the tree bark. So simple to wrap around the tree trunks. I stacked two of them on top of each other and put one on each of the offshoots so the rabbits couldn't reach any parts of the tree. Very simple and inexpensive solution.
