Ezee Tree wins Soil Association prize

A biodegradable tree guard from Ezee Tree has won the Soil Association innovation award 2013.

The tree guard is made from 100 per-cent recycled moulded fibre, which is waterproofed by using non-toxic additives, and supported by a bamboo cane.

Judges said: "These guards offer an environmentally-friendly option that saves resources and labour as they decompose in situ and do not need to be removed"

Natalie Davies, managing director of Ezee Tree said: "It's great to be recognised for all the hard work and dedication our family team has put in, it's such a simple idea, but did take a considerable amount of research, design and time to be able to launch the Ezee Tree Guard.

"Plastic has an impact on all of us and we believe everyone is realising this. We are proud to have developed and now can offer a true, cost effective alternative."

Other winners included the Wheel Track Roller from Aquagronomy.
