Dastardly Deer

I am having a terrible time with deer loping off my 3/4" diameter apple trees. Does anyone have any good ideas regarding fencing or wire mesh or electric fencing or applying something to the tree or anything else that might help keep the deer away?I am thinking about wrapping 4 ft snow fence around metal stakes in maybe a 4 ft diameter.

Started by Bill Pontius in Woodlot Management Jan 4. 0 Replies

Here's a hypothetical question (hopefully). If an ash stand no longer has sufficient density to qualify for the 480a program following ash borer invasion, and if that stand is necessary for having more than 50 acres for the program, what happens?…Continue
