Which Tree Guard is Best For You?2 mins read
Tree guards can be essential to ensuring the survival of your plants and trees – especially when young and vulnerable to external forces. With several types of tree guard available, we’ve compiled an easy list to outline the main benefits of each type.
Plastic Sleeve Tree Guard
Plastic Sleeve guards are the most widely used option for tree protection. Along with protecting from pests, wind and herbicides, this guard creates a microenvironment that will reduce UV levels while increasing humidity and carbon dioxide levels for your trees.

Mesh guards are available in pre-cut or on a roll where they can be cut to size. Reusable and highly economical, a mesh guard is a perfect choice for planting locations prone to high winds. A durable solution that allows plants to acclimatise to their surroundings, mesh guards are even used by National Parks and Wildlife Service to protect from wallabies and rabbits!
