A frequently asked question has been: Does Wilson Forestry Supply offer 5 foot Tubex Combitube Tree Tubes? I'm happy to be able to say: We will soon!
4 foot tree tubes are still the most popular size, and get the job done in the majority of situations. Most tree planters are best served by 4 foot tree tubes - moderate cost, excellent deer browse protection, and if deer nip a few emerging shoots a couple of treatments of Deer Guard repellent are enough to get the terminal shoot past the browse line.
However, sometimes a 5 foot tree tube can make all the difference - that extra one foot of deer browse protection is needed to get the trees past the browse line.
The need for 5 foot tree tubes is primarily drive by the population density of whitetail deer. The more deer per square mile, the heavier the pressure on available sources of food. The more pressure on food sources the more deer are forces to reach higher to get the food they need - to the point of standing on their hind legs.
So if your spring project calls for 5 foot tubes, don't worry, we have them on the way. Don't order from somewhere else until you contact us for a low price on 5ft tree tubes!
