I use aluminum windowscreen, and just run it around once, being careful
to seal the ends. I have few enough trees that my experience doesn't
count for much, but I have also used window screen to keep mice out of
the house, and one layer seems adequate. It's nice, because it
breathes well, and probably also keeps out boring beetles.
I get the window screen free from the local place the fixes people's
screen windows and doors. I just don't use the part that's ripped or
whatever. The don't usually keep it around, (and spring is the best
time to visit) but usually when I show up they have some lying around
from the day's work.
