A great solution for protection from voles that is 100% biodegradable, ensuring a positive environmental legacy.
Every year thousands of trees are killed by vole and mice. NexGen vole guards can help you replace the use of plastic vole guards with a viable, environmentally friendly alternative.
The man behind the innovation is Gary Hurlstone, whose father Graham invented the Tubex Tree Shelter in the mid 1980’s.
Gary took his father’s 35 year old design and set out to deliver a range of protection that performs at least as well, whilst being environmentally friendly and cost effective.
The NexGen vole guards are made from a special mix of British wool, a biodegradable polyol (made from ethically sourced cashew nutshell liquid and castor oil), and an innovative biodegradable custom polymer.
At its heart is a simple concept that has taken four years of extensive research and development, working with foresters, landowners and industry experts, to deliver the next generation in tree shelters.
Scientifically proven as 100% biodegradable this is a tree shelter that delivers the perfect environment for young tree plants to thrive in, without harming the environment.
- Protects from voles & mice
- Easy installation - no support needed
- 100% biodegradable - no need for collection and recycling.
Separate from the nest of 3 guards, gently open and wrap around the base of the tree. Push the guard into the soil slightly to create an effective barrier against vole and mice damage.
Note - no support is required if installed correctly, however, should you wish to provide your young plant and vole guard with extra support then we recommend using a cane.
