Building high tunnel for cherries

Sorry to hear that it didn’t work well and thank you for letting me know. I was considering using a similar set up for plums to try to reduce the likelihood of issues with brown rot and fruit splitting. I was also thinking that the rain protection could allow for less applications of Kaolin clay. Do you think that bird netting instead of fine netting could have been used to avoid the aphid issues?

Yes, it probably will if you also prevent ants from going up the tree and the structure - they protect aphids and lady bug don’t go in. But you will not have protection from other pest insects that are after your plums…
