Tubex shelters provided amazing growth results compared to trees planted outside shelters

A great endorsement from a customer in Canada showing how Tubex Tree Shelters have improved growth rates of his trees dramatically:

"The trees reach out of the tube and will grow two to three feet in a year compared to the six inches that their non tubed brothers and sisters manage"

The article below is from "The Farmer goes to Seminary" blog, where a customer in Canada has used Tubex Tree Shelters when planting trees on his farm. The extract below shows a clear endorsement of the benefits of tubes versus planting with no tubes. 

 

"We have actually had the best luck with the deciduous trees that came from the nursery. I don’t think that it is because the stock is so much better, but rather, because we discovered Tubex tree tubes at the same time. Deciduous seedlings, in their natural environment, grow underneath the forest canopy. I’m taking them from there and asking them to grow in the open."

"The tree tube protects the small tree from the wind, creates a bit of a moist environment, and creates a greenhouse effect that gives the plant a little more heat.

"The results are amazing compared to trees without the tube. The trees reach out of the tube and will grow two to three feet in a year compared to the six inches that their non tubed brothers and sisters manage."
