Ulricehamn tree guard

Camilla Wessman

Urban trees often benefit from protection. The Ulricehamn tree guard encases trees in an attractive steel structure that safeguards the trunk from damage caused by vehicles and cycles. The steel bars at the bottom of the frame widen to provide extra room for the trunk’s growth and fan outwards at the top to discourage climbing. Ulricehamn is lightweight and easy to position in place and can be paired with a tree grille to protect the roots.
