Tree cages

Apricot!

You’ve put in some serious work @Richard!

I’ve got a larger cage in my head for multiple trees, but it would look just awful.

After pollination have you put a finer mesh on the cage to try to keep harmful insects out - like what I’ve read as bee netting?

The insect pressure against Prunus here is low. I rarely spray them for insect pests.

Hi, for squirrels do you recommend 1/2in hardware cloth? I can’t find one with 16 gauge, only 19. Do you think squirrels will be capable of chewing through 19 gauge?
