When protecting even the tiniest seedlings – or even direct seeded acorns, chestnuts, or walnuts – from deer browse you definitely need 4ft or 5ft Tree Tubes.
However, there are many cases where deer aren’t a problem – or at least aren’t a severe problem – and you can get by with shorter tree tubes. For example this week I worked with a customer who has an 8ft deer fence around the planting area, and just needed a short tube to protect her seedlings from rodents.
We have 18, 24 and 30 inch tree tubes in stock and ready to ship. The cool thing about these tubes is that they are easily reusable – and since when protecting from rodents you usually only need 2 to 3 years of protection and these tubes last a good 5-6 years, you can easily get two uses from them and get more bang for your tree planting buck.
