Made of rubber elastomer it incorporates similar features and characteristics to the Supersoft, but at 20in (50cm) long it is suitable for use on bigger trees.
This lovely soft tree tie performed like the SuperSoft in all ways except one – while most ribs form drainage channels, five of them are blocked by strengthening rubber so impeding the movement of rainwater away from the tree bark.
Sold singularly, this one-piece tree tie is strong, easy to use and reusable. Other sizes are available: from 12in (30cm) to 24in (60cm).
