Claude, I wanted to see this picture you were talking about but it required
a sign in. I don't want to sign up for something else. Is there anyplace
where we can see the picture without signing in?

I agree with Betsy.
See this picture of the trunk of a young apple tree of mine that was badly
damages by voles. There was a spiral protector but I probably didn't
install it tight enough and the the small beasts ate along the spiral. The
picture was taken 2 years ago (and 2 years after damage occured). Last fall
the tree gave me a beautiful crop...
