Created by Growers for Growers

Originally created by growers for growers to provide an immediate solution to citrus greening by preventing psyllids from infecting trees.


Having been in the field now for over three years, Tree Defender can still confidently say that no psyllid has yet to be found on any tree being covered by their protective, breathable screen.

The goal is to use Tree Defender to protect young trees from psyllids and greening during their first two years as they are in a vegetative and growing state. After those two years, the bag is removed, and the trees are healthy, pesticide-free, and ready to start producing fruit and crops immediately. If the grower wishes to continue protecting the tree into the mature years, then they simply purchase a larger Tree Defender.

The issue of controlling citrus greening and the spread of psyllids is still a very real and relevant problem.

Tree Defender is not only the most effective and organic solution to this problem, it is the most affordable and economically valuable solution. By covering each tree, you are creating individual micro-environments that keep pests and diseases out. In the unlikely event a tree does become infected in a bag, then the disease will not spread outside that bag and possibly harm the surrounding trees.

  • Different Sizes – 4 foot, 5 foot, 7 foot all the way up to a 12 foot bag

  • Profitable – The Tree Defender for the first two season returns a profit of over $3,000 per acre and an Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 60.7%

  • Protect against HLBTree Defender provides an immediate solution to citrus greening by preventing psyllids from infecting citrus trees as they are maturing.

These larger bags are designed for mature trees. They have four sides with two opposing zippered sides which allows for harvesting activities without removing the Tree Defender. Each screen has a life expectancy of up to eight years and is also ideal for protecting various other small trees and plants such as tomatoes or peppers.
