What is the best tree guard to put around the trunk for winter?
Tree wrap, a tree sleeve or say one of those plastic mesh tree guards?
And how do the branches fit in those things? Do you bend the branches upward? Will it hurt them if you do that?
We have already put individual fences around my young 4ft tall maple trees, buried 8-12 inches deep, but I'm not taking any chances anymore. I want to make damn sure voles don't get to my trees this winter.
