Give your young trees a helping hand with our mesh tree shelters!

Product includes: 1 shelter and 2 zip ties (wood stake not included)

Our 4 ft. tall by 6” diameter mesh shelters offer good protection from deer browse and help prevent accidental damage from lawn equipment. Traditional solid tube shelters have a tendency to attract small rodents who will nest in the base of the tube and potentially harm the tree, but not our shelters! The open mesh of these tree shelters discourages nesting rodents.

These shelters are photodegradable and come with two zip ties to attach to a support stake (the stake is not included, but they can be found in most home improvement stores or gardening centers. We recommend one that is at least 5′ tall). The shelters can be cut with scissors as needed if the height needs to be shortened for any reason. They can also be cut longways in order to easily wrap around more stocky plants.

Shipping Information

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Perennials can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Trees and shrubs can be shipped in bundles up to 4. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants now ships via FedEx. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
