Motala

Tree Guard

Olle Anderson

Motala is a classic tree guard that encases the tree in a protective metal cage. Taller than many other tree guards, Motala offers excellent protection for bigger trees too. The tree guard is widest at the bottom, where it is reinforced with more steel ribs. The design provides an attractive complement to historic centres and too contemporary streetscapes too.
