[NAFEX] Tree Wrap Anyone ?

I've used something that sounds similar the last 2 years and the only
damage I've had was from rabbits (I think) the first year before I got
the trees wrapped.

Hi All;

 

It's Richard Murphy (again). Zone 4 Maine.

 

Last month I wrapped 70 apple trees (2 or 3 yr old) with that white
colored tree-wrap from Gemplers or Home Depot.

It said it also protects against rodents.

 

After 2 weeks I went back up to check on things.

All the tree wraps were cool, except for one.

Something chewed through one of the wraps, but didn't touch the bark at
all.

Maybe there was a bug under the fabric.

The fabric is tough but stretchy, so this wasn't easy to do...

All the mulch is pulled away from the trees. 

Has anyone used this fabric against voles / mice ???

Is it effective, or do I need to run back up there with some hardware
cloth?

I lost 20 of 90 trees last year. Don't want a relapse.

 

Help....

 

Richard Murphy

 

PS

 

Any sources for Evans cherry trees in addition to SLN and Fedco ?
