Fruit trees and birdfeeders can be protected from unwanted diners.
- Heavy gauge plastic or aluminum sold on a roll at hardware stores can be wrapped around trunk of trees to deter climbing. Animals can't get their claws into these materials. Stove pipe works well. Open one side, place around trunk and close.
- Fruit trees can be netted to protect fruit from most birds and animals.
- Hang bird feeders by a hanging plant hook on the side of the house, or on a pole that animals can't climb.
