We highly recommend protecting your trees with a tree tube

Growing trees in the Northeast has proved challenging. One of our main struggles has been with deer and other tree nibbling predators.Not only were our orchard trees being nibbled and rubbed, but now the deer/rabbits/porcupines/voles and more were heading towards our nursery stock.I guess when you set out a buffet, the animals say ‘THANKS!’We decided to purchase a few hundred TREE PRO Miracle Tree Tubes and were quickly sold on the benefits.Trees that seemed to be stuck in their growth were now growing. We no longer had to constantly move electric fencing. Even trees in remote areas on the farm were thriving.We’ve decided to offer these to our customers for both seedling and tree protection. They ship with no additional cost with your tree order and definitely provide extra shipping cushion as well.You can add them to your order here: Tree Tubes
