Rigid tubes are the most popular form of seedling protection. Exposure to ultraviolet light causes the tubes to photo degrade and disintegrate in 2 to 4 years. To support the tubes, a metal pin, bamboo stakes, or a similar type of staking devices is recommended. Rigid tubes are excellent protection for high browse areas.
