Speaking of replacing stakes…

Now is a great time to visit your tree tubes and check on the wood or bamboo stakes… did rutting bucks knock them over or snap them off?… did they rot off at the groundline or break in the wind? Broken stakes and fallen tree tubes leave your trees vulnerable to deer browse this winter [...]

PVC stakes getting rave reviews!

We have been hearing from customers about the benefits and great performance of Tree Protection Supply’s PVC Tree Tube Stakes.

Turbo-charged Tree Tubes!

Back in the dark ages of tree tubes – 20 years ago or so – the goal was to create an air tight, virtually hermetically sealed greenhouse environment.

Ventilation has two primary benefits: It reduces the temperature inside [...]

Overlooked Benefits Of Tree Tubes

Folks usually buy tree tubes the first time because they are sick of their seedlings getting eaten by deer, and they are sick of planting again and again with nothing to show for it.
