It is best to plant your trees within a week or two weeks of arrival. Remember, when your trees arrive we advise to keep them upright, well-watered and away from strong sunlight and high winds. If looking to use a tree guard when planting Douglas Fir whips, we recommend using a mesh tree guard, in order to ensure the young trees have adequate ventilation. For further information on planting cell grown trees please click here to read our blog.

By using a tree guard it provides improved survival rates by offering first-line defence against pests such as voles, mice, rabbits, hares, deer, plus other wildlife and livestock, at a young tree's most vulnerable growing stage.

It also provides protection to your newly planted cell grown trees for from seasonal weather conditions, herbicides and other chemical sprays.

They can also guard against machinery contact and abrasion, such as strimmers.
