High Caliper Tree Collars

Protection That Looks Great

The patented Tree Collar is the premium device for securing trees and preventing wind blow over. Keeps your trees upright and uptight! The Tree Collar fastens to a cable line to hold a row of plants in a production or retail setting.

  • Protect your plants against wind-damage
  • Easy to fasten, easy to remove trees from the line
  • Tree collars are reusable year after year
  • Trees are more saleable without broken branches
  • Extra padding helps eliminate scaring and damage to the trunk

How It Works

Holds Trees In A Row
Easy On & Off With The Collar
Prevents Blow Over

Keeps Rows of Plants Upright

The Tree Collar is used by commercial tree farms that are growing a
number of plants in a row or by retail garden centers that need a permanent holding area where larger container plants can be securely held and displayed.

Protects Against Tree Scarring

Made with heavy-duty polypropylene webbing, the Tree Collar bolts on to the cable with versatile stainless steel cable clamps. A rubber padding inside the polypropylene webbing further protects against trunk scarring. The Tree Collar fastens to the tree with both a Velcro and a latch, which will not slip or accidentally come off. It is easy to adjust, open and close

Available Sizes

There are 3 sizes to choose from.

TF #1 Fits a 1” to 2” plant DBH (usually a 15 gallon)
TF #2 Fits a 2” to 3” plant DBH (usually a 20 to 30 gallon)
TF #3 Fits a 3” to 4” plant DBH (usually a 30 to 65 gallon)
TF #4 Fits a 4” to 6” plant DBH (usually a 100 gallon or larger)

Installation

Installation of a Cable Line

The Tree Collar works on a cable line. Most customers use a high tensile cable either 3/16” or ¼”. Do not use a plastic coated cable, as this may cause the Collars to slip.

The cable is attached to posts in the ground. If the post is wood, be sure to use a treated wood. A 4” by 6” by 8’ wood post is common. Using an auger, sink the post 3’ in the ground. The posts may be placed as much as 50’ apart. The entire run might be over 400’ long, with a supporting post every 50’. If the plants are placed apart every 5’, a 400’ cable run might hold up to 70 trees.

Many customers place a turnbuckle at the midpoint of the cable line. The turnbuckle is used to tighten and loosen the cable line as needed.

Do not allow the cable line to pull against the posts and pull the posts out of the ground. Support the posts. A ground anchor, similar to an anchor for a mobile home, may help secure the cable line and the posts.

Installation of the Tree Collars

The High Caliper Tree Collars attach to a cable line by a galvanized steel plate. Screw the plates together to secure the Tree Collar. The Tree Collar will be locked into place, creating a permanent holding station for your trees.

Secure the tree on the Tree Collar. Make sure the plant sits flat on the ground and is not leaning into the cable line or the Tree Collar.

Do not fit the Tree Collar too tight. Leave about a ¼” of space between the Tree Collar and the trunk.

Resize the Tree Collar as the tree grows. If the tree is held for one year, for example, you may need to enlarge the Tree Collar three or four times.

Do not let the tree trunk grow into the Tree Collar. This will damage the plant.
