Drain tile as tree protectors

Has any one used plastic drain tile for tree protectors? I had a HOA this year that got hit hard with Vole damage over the winter. The lawn came back with a little TLC, but we lost 4 trees. All about 4" to 5" DBH. What I think I want to do is cut up a 100' roll of drain tile into 2' chunks. Slit them down one side so as to get them around the tree. Is Black tile OK? Do I need to worry about the Black holding to much heat from the sun? Is two feet tall enough? Should I use perforated or solid? Any help appreciated. PR
