The collecting of used metal window screen from the hardware store has 
worked out great..they're happy to be rid of it and we're happy to take it, 
lots.  Should be enough for all 200 trees by summers end.
The smaller the diameter I make the tube the more I get from each sheet. But 
the sooner it will be too small. Rabbits aren't a concern, just voles, and 
perhaps those borers (don't know if they are in our area).
	The screen cuts beautifully in a paper cutter, with scissors, or metal 
shears.  I have'nt decided yet whether to staple it into a tube or loosely 
wrap say twice around and tie with wire (so it can be expanded later)
	Question  : What dia. of tree is it no longer needed against voles?...if 
you were doing it what max diameter would you all make the tubes? 1", 3", 
6", ? rootstocks are: apple (prunifolia and B118), manchurian apricot, pyrus 
ussuriensis, prunus americana.  Thanks    Mn. Del Z2/3 where 1/3 of the 
apples are green tip.
