It is still a while before we need to worry about winter cold and winds damaging our trees, but deer can do a lot of damage rubbing antlers on young trees. Plastic tree guards are a great solution for young trees and fruit trees too plus they are easy to put on and take off when spring rolls around. For larger trees and other situations a hardware screen fence is a better option. Be sure to leave enough space between the fencing and the tree to prevent rubbing. These options also can prevent sun scald damage on trees and other animal damage too. The rabbits have already been gnawing on my shrubs so be on the lookout for signs of damage and put fencing around these plants too.
