Beech in treeshelters

, : Beech in treeshelters. Quarterly Journal of Forestry 87(2): 107-115

A report on research conducted by the UK Forestry Authority on the survival and growth of beech (Fagus sylvatica) in tree guards. The observation that beech exhibits a variable reaction to tree guards was first linked with humidity. In response, various ventilated designs of tree guards appeared on the market. Research has shown that these designs have no detrimental effects on the survival or growth of beech.
