Possum tree guards and banding

Don't let scratches and squeaks keep you up at night

Possums have a bad habit of destroying tree foliage, and making homes of roofs and ceilings. They get there by climbing nearby trees, and scratching their way into rooftop crevasses. But possums are protected by the National Park Wildlife Act — that's why we offer possum bands and tree collars, to stop these furry critters making their way into your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do tree bands deter possums?

Made from colour bond sheets or polycarbonate materials, tree bands are placed on tree trunks and some branches (where relevant). Possums won't be able to grip the tree bands so they won't be able to climb or cross them.

Are tree bands humane?

Yes. Tree bands only prevent possums from climbing the tree — they don't hurt possums in any way.

Are your tree bands durable?

Yes, we've tested our tree bands against the elements, and they are highly durable. We'll also perform on-going maintenance to make sure they remain effective once installed.

Is there anything else you can do?

We can trim and lop any tree branches which may be close to the main building or structure. Possums can only jump around two and a half metres, so we'll make sure there is enough distance between your trees and the building.
