A new range of biodegradable tree guards is now available at StrataGreen. Meet the NaturGuard BIO, a sustainable option that offers excellent protection for plants and saplings for the first year. The NaturGuard BIO is made in Australia and is 100% sustainable & compostable.

NaturGuard BIO tree guards are easy to use

The NaturGuard BIO has a slot in the back for easy staking. All you need to do is pop open the NaturGuard BIO to its triangular shape. Then, insert the stake through the slots and hammer the one stake into the ground to help your young tree. Consider hardwood tree stakes from StrataGreen for your planting project.

NaturGuard BIO is a more sustainable solution.

The team at StrataGreen added the NaturGuard BIO tree guard to the range to ensure there is a perfect tree guard for every situation. “We have customers with ambitious environmental goals, and we want to ensure we have a suitable option for every situation,” says Tim Sharpe, Sales Director. A lot is going for biodegradable possibilities these days. The biodegradable NaturGuard BIO lasts long enough to help a young tree grow strong roots to thrive within 2-3 years, just like a plastic tree guard does, but with more environmental benefits.  

No removal required

One apparent key advantage is that NaturGuard BIO doesn’t need removal like plastic tree guards. Usually, you should remove plastic tree guards after 1-2 years once the young tree is strong enough to withstand stronger winds and threats like rodents. Since NaturGuard Bio will fully degrade after 2-3 years, it doesn’t need removal. Biodegradable tree guards save time and money, while plastic tree guards can also blow away and cause damage before you get a chance to remove them. Sadly, they get stuck in waterways or other natural habitats if not removed in time. NaturGuard BIO does not leave microplastics in the ground, another reason to consider them for this year’s planting projects.  

“The NaturGuard BIO is a great solution. They offer all the usual benefits of plastic tree guards while also being kinder to the environment”, says Tim Sharpe.
