We went away for a couple of days last week and I arrived home to deer induced fruit tree carnage. They ate most of the growth off of my young apples, pears and plums and broke a number of limbs. Prior to the carnage these trees were growing like mad and filling out really nicely. My results so far with plantskydd have been spotty so I ventured off to Lowe’s and $200 later I have 10’ wire circles surrounding all of my young trees:
The deer didn’t touch my peaches which was a bit of a surprise. I’ll remove the cages in a year or two and will adjust the diameter as they start to branch out. If I lived in the country bambi would be in the freezer now.
