Humphrey Herington is a commercial nurseryman from country NSW. He cares about the environment and the longevity of the plants he grows. Like many entrepreneurs, he identified a specific problem in his workplace and pledged to solve it.
Currently, when large scale land restoration occurs, plastic tree guards are often used to protect seedlings from pests and adverse weather in their early stages of growth.

More significantly, they are rarely removed at the end of life so the toxic plastic remains in the environment for ever. Humphrey had a better idea.
