Especially when planting young trees, sunburn can cause serious damage. There are ways of offering preventive protection to planted trees.
A good solution is the coconut fibre trunk protector, which protects the bark all year round against large temperature fluctuations and direct sunlight, and can also prevent frost damage. The bark remains cooler in summer because the sun does not penetrate the coconut as quickly. This creates shade and it does not close off completely, allowing the trunk to breathe better. In winter, the trunk is protected from the cold wind.
