Quercus petraea (Mattuschka) Liebl.

Descriptor: Planting
Description: Tree shelters used for establishment and protection of young trees and plants. View of an experiment, the shelters in the foreground showing how they are stacked to save space. One of many tree shelter experiments that I have worked on. Here, oak(Quercus petraea), was the subject and can just be seen in some of the shelters. Earlier work had indicated the need to use strong stakes,hence those on the left.
