We are creating a silvopasture in abandoned cropland that became woodland, that was devastated by EAB and then logged with slash left behind and then became a junkyard.

It is horrible that your voles are so voracious!  I’m sure fox would love to eat the voles, but of course you need fencing and donkeys to protect the sheep.  

Voles are easy to trap (cover a mousetrap with a box that has an entry hole) but then you’d have to empty and reset the traps daily.  I throw the dead rodents where I think fox will travel, and they’re always gone by the next morning.  

I’ve read that you can put in landing posts to encourage raptors to hunt your field. Basically tall posts with a crossbar perch on top.  That would be nice to do, and probably control your voles if you could entice a raptor or two to stay in your land.  It’d be great to have a hawk pair by day and an owl pair by night!  The perch posts would encourage both.  Some owls will nest in wood-built owlhouses.  

I definitely can agree that voles LOVE to live under cardboard and in shallow compost piles.  IDK if placing such things away from your baby trees would keep them busy elsewhere.
