What is Tree Protection Fencing / Tree Shelter?

There are many types of trees that require different types of tree shelter. This is especially true when it comes to trees that are protected from a variety of threats. For example, some trees need protection from animals, such as deer, that graze on them for nourishment. Trees require shelter protection from construction work, farm machinery, children, pets, and wild animals.

To protect trees from such threats, a variety of tree protection fencing has been developed. The protection is usually made up of steel mesh panels or galvanized steel wire mesh panels that are typically used to protect trees from damage.

The cost of trees can be enormous and so it is important that you do what you can to protect them in your garden. Protection fencing is extremely economical, and it is effective as well.

Types of Tree Protection Fencing:

Although tree protection fencing is simple to build, it is not as simple to choose the right kind of fencing for a specific tree. There are many things to think about when choosing fencing for a tree, such as what type of tree it is, and where the fencing will be. There are three types of tree protection fencing to consider: arbour netting, tree guards, and tree cages.

You will also need to consider whether you need physical and visual protection. Physical tree protection fencing includes things like chain-link and wooden fencing, which are obvious barriers that nothing can get through, while visual tree protection fencing includes things like a fence of netting, which is less visible.

Arbour Netting

Arbour netting is now the most popular way to protect trees and plants from deer and other animals. It can be used to cover the entire tree or to shield certain parts only. It is made of fine polypropylene that is strong and can withstand high winds and snow. Arbour netting can be attached directly to the tree trunks without the need for any additional fixing. It is also easy to remove and store when not in use.

Tree Guards

Tree guards are easily spaced to accommodate large and small trees. They are made from strong materials and come in a variety of heights to protect trees and shrubs of all sizes. The guards are attached to the trunk and lower branches of trees.

A more recent development is the use of long tubes made of steel, polyethylene, or PVC to protect individual trees or small groups of trees. These are installed around the tree trunk and provide protection from human activity.

Tree Cages

Tree cages are constructed by placing a two-inch mesh over a sturdy structure. The mesh gives the tree space to grow and the structure supports the weight of the mesh. The cages should be set on a sloping concrete pad to allow for drainage. The cages can be constructed out of a variety of materials, including wooden frames, steel frames, or concrete.

Tree cage mesh must be strong and able to resist the weight of tree branches and even small animals. The mesh must also allow tree growth through it, so the tree can grow and develop properly.

Choosing the best fencing protection for your tree

If you need to protect a tree, you are probably thinking about what type of tree protection fencing to use. The materials available all have their advantages and disadvantages.

You should choose your tree protection fencing based on the type of tree you are trying to protect, your budget, and where the fence will be placed. You should also consider how much space you have, and how long the tree has to be protected. Some of these materials are relatively expensive, while others are pretty cheap.

Tree protection fencing should also only be used on trees that are smaller than six inches in diameter because once the tree gets larger than six inches, it will need a more robust type of protection fence.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How far apart should tree protection fencing be?

The minimum distance for the erection of protective fencing around each tree is below the outermost limit of the branch spread. Or at a distance equal to half the height of the tree, whichever is the greater distance from the tree trunk.

Why do we fence around trees?

The best thing about using tree fences is that they make the soil on the ground less dense, which lets rain get into the roots of trees. Limiting compaction is important for trees as well as for stormwater run-off.
