For those tougher jobs, providing a slightly wider diameter than the Tubex Standard is the Tubex Standard Plus. These nests of 5 tubex come with a diameter range of 80-120mm.

Tubex Tree shelters provide a micro-climate for trees which results in better initial establishment and higher survival rates, allowing for the planting of smaller trees which are cheaper and easier to source, and ultimately lead to trees with stronger roots.

Tubex Standard Plus Treeshelter 1.8m is available for purchase in increments of 5

Tubex Standard Plus Treeshelter 1.8m high x 80-120mm.

Higher air moisture within the Tubex treeshelter reduces water stress and enables the plant to survive in dry or drought conditions. The Tubex Standard Plus Tree Shelter also provides complete protection against animals including rabbits, hare, muntjac and deer and herbicides in a way that is flexible, efficient and cost effective.

Tubex treeshelters;
- provide a barrier against damage from animals
- protect against drift from pesticides during spraying
- create a microclimate around the young plant, sheltering it from extremes of weather and enhancing its growth
- are made from durable twin-wall construction
- have releasable ratchet ties
- are designed with a flared rim to reduce rubbing on the plant’s stem

Choice of shelter height depends on the wildlife present on site:

Rabbits  60cm
Hares  75cm
Muntjac Deer  1.2m
Fallow Deer  1.5m
Red Deer  1.8m

A square stake is needed to support each Tubex Tree Shelter, inserted into the ground to 1/3 of the stake height, ensuring the stake is below the flared rim at the top of the shelter. See Square Stakes for recommended sizes. 

Please note, these tree shelters come in nests of 5 tubes with a slight variation in diameter ranging from 80-120mm. Tubes to be separated before use. 

Also available:
- Tubex Standard Treeshelter - providing a slightly narrower diameter than the Tubex Standard Plus
- Tubex Shrubshelter for slightly bushier plants.

Our bare root plants and cuttings are delivered between November and May (specific dates cannot be guaranteed) but we do encourage early planting for the best results.

Most orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days where stocks are available. If they are not available at the time of order you will be notified and an alternative delivery date discussed with you.We ship to mainland UK and the Isle of Wight (although surcharges may be incurred in some more remote areas). Our orders are generally sent out using a national courier but for local deliveries, we may use our own couriers. Orders can also be collected from the nursery by prior appointment and we are more than happy for you to do this if you prefer.

Our standard delivery charge is £15 plus VAT. This is for a next day delivery service in areas where this is available (i.e. mainland UK). For areas outside mainland UK, such as northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scottish islands and mainland Europe, we can often offer delivery but will need to confirm the costs of these with you, so please call us to discuss on 01404 811229.  

There's usually no need to wait in for a standard delivery, our couriers will leave it in a safe place for you. If there is somewhere in particular you would like it left, please let us know at the time of ordering. For taller plants or a larger volume (particularly root ball trees), a pallet may be required. We will let you know at the time of your order as this will usually incur an additional fee. 

On arrival you should try to plant as soon as possible but, if the weather makes this impossible, cuttings will remain viable somewhere cold for 4 weeks. A cold shed or outside is fine but if the weather turns warm then put them into a fridge if possible. If you are unable to plant the rooted trees within ten days of arrival then we suggest that you unpack the bale and cover the roots with soil in a shallow trench to keep them moist.

It is important to look after your trees as they mature so now click on After-Planting Care for some useful guide-lines.
