Note:-


All tree guards may, in some circumstances, be subject to damage by deer or rabbits, especially if populations are excessively high. Deer may rub guards to remove antler velvet, and knock them over, and/or damage the guard and tree. This can happen with tube type protection, or with net guards. Our guards protect in the majority of situations, however in some instances, additional protective measures may be required, such as shooting. If high population of deer, especially Fallow or Red are known to exist, deer fencing should be considered as an alternative to individual protection.

 

Force Majeure:-


We will not be liable for any claim relating to our failure to supply, where this failure has arisen to climatic, natural, accidental or any other causes beyond our control.
