Cardboard, with an entirely natural water-based coating
There's a lot of variables, but we know they last at least three years.
Cardboard is compostable, and will break down - but only when conditions for composting are met, in particular heat. The tree-shelters have been designed to avoid any early degradation, but will eventually weaken and began to lose their integrity. At this point, and this will take many years, they will break down.
Yes, these tree-shelters are entirely free of any plastics.
Yes, these tree-shelters are entirely free of any PLA.
Yes, if you do collect the shelters in, they can be recycled with paper/card.
Collecting in tree-shelters can be time consuming and costly. With these tree-shelters there really is no need. When they do eventually break down, after many years in the wild, they will just become food for the tree...
Yes, subject to minimum order quantities being agreed we could supply the tree-shelters in different colours.
Yes, the tree-shelters are designed around the fact that users will normally want to use a stake or cane to secure their young tree. We can advise on the size needed.
Sirane's Earthboard is a unique board which is naturally water-resistant. It's so good at its job that we can actually make ice buckets out of it... unlike most cardboard, which does not appreciate being wet, Earthboard simply repels water.
Yes, we have a range of sizes, ranging from 45cm high (and 5cm x 5cm) suitable for saplings up to 1.5m high (and 10cm x 10cm) for young trees. We also off a shrub guard which is 60cm high and 15cmx15cm.
We stock green tree-shelters as standard, but they are available in any Pantone colour subject to MOQs. We can also supply them custom printed.
Yes, we can print the tree-shelters if required. So you could use the space for branding, advertising, logos, messaging/information and more.
