The safe & humane way to stop possums accessing at-risk and significant trees

Possum Guard requires just a few simple tools for installation.

Installation is fast and efficient and does not damage the tree.

All you will need is:

  • a cordless driver or drill
  • a sharp utility knife
  • a tape measure, or ideally, a tree diameter tape
  • some electrical or plumbers tape.

Both 500mm and 930mm kits include 20m of the clear polycarbonate sheet, joining strips & screws.

Additional joiner strips available in packs of 20 – purchase direct at the webstore

Measure the Tree Circumference for the Possum Guard

1) Measure the circumference of the trunk at the height you wish to place the possum guard. Allow at least 1500mm above the ground and allow for a 100mm overlap.

Cut the clear poly-carbonate to required length

2) Unroll and measure the guard to the required length. Cut the guard at the required length using the galvanised joining strip as a guide.

Position the guard in place with electrical or plumbers tape

3) Wrap the guard around the tree. Use tape to secure the guard at the desired height.

Slide the Joiner into position either side of the overlap

4) Clamp the joiner down, using a drill, screw the top screw into the joiner to fasten it. Then proceed and screw all remaining screws into the joiner.

Secure the strip in place with screws - it can be re-positioned as the tree grows!

5) The installation of theĀ  possum guard is now complete. As part of ongoing maintenance the guard can be adjusted as the tree grows – simply remove the screws from the joiner, reposition the overlap and reset the screws.
