TREE SHELTERS

 

Acorn Brand tree shelters are a product the Soil Conservation District offers. They are designed to protect newly planted trees from deer browsing and rubbing. An additional benefit is protection from herbicide drift from nearby fields. The shelter acts as a mini greenhouse, giving the tree accelerated growth the first few years. The shelters may need to be checked periodically and re-staked if deer have pushed them over from constant rubbing. The shelters may qualify for cost share assistance. Shelters are sold as a 2-pack which contains one 3-inch diameter and one 4-inch diameter tree shelter for $9. Shelters are 5 ft in height. Stakes are sold separately if needed.
