Spring is here in the Upper Midwest and neighbors who I haven't seen since 
November are out in their bits of paradise spraying and pruning.  Several 
have fruit and nut trees.  One has two Heart Nut trees that finally began to 
bear last season.  He didn't get a nut, because the squirrels ate them all 
in the green husk stage.  What do you nut growers do to protect your crops 
from squirrels?  It's never been an issue for me, but given my neighbor's 
experience, I may have problems this season as several fruit trees will 
bear for the first time since I planted them in 2003.
