Housekeeping tree shelters

Tucked away in a corner of the wood I found this hazel severely outgrowing its tree shelter. We take most tree shelters off before they get to this stage so I will be out with my Stanley knife soon.  My pet hate is the sight, common is new woodlands on the South Downs, of tree shelters left lying around as rubbish.  Countryside visitors often get blame for littering but some landowners cause far more with these long lasting plastic tree shelters.
