I think the idea is to use them in heavily decayed trunks with very thin 
walls of sound wood, so a solid mass in the middle prevents it going 
oval and buckling [hosepipe failure].  Gabions would be a good choice as 
they are solid, but permable to air and water and reasonably vandal proof.

Most of the ones I've seen are big cubes, but I guess it wouldn't be too 
difficult to get the cage custom built and possibly fill it on site.
