Customer Reviews for Leonard Rigid Plastic Mesh Tree Guards, Set of 5

5 Stars

Maybe this will work!

wrote ():

The product is easy to wrap around the tree trunks. I used 1 on a narrower tree and doubled up on a wider trunk. Seems like it will work to protect the bark from deer antlers.

worked for newly grafted apple trees

wrote ():

I cut these into 3 pieces and used for my newly grafted apple trees along with bamboo posts. they worked great.

Great product and multiple uses

wrote ():

This is the only product that worked to protect our newly planted trees from the deer. In fact, the only trees that lived were the ones with these guards. We also have problems with deer and/or raccoons digging up recent plantings such as raspberries. We plant them, and the next morning, they are pulled out, and lying in the sun, drying out. We cut these guards into pieces, then lay them flat and anchor them with 10" ground staples (which we use for the trees as well). The plants survive, and we can use the mesh again for the next time around. Coming back to buy more!

improvement over tree wrap

wrote ():

Doesn't hold moisture against the bark. Use a few small zip ties to hold the opening shut so the deer can't rub it loose.

Repeat order

wrote ():

This is my second order. What I like about these tree protectors (besides the cost) is hat they can easily be cut into other lengths to suit my needs. A few zip ties is all you need to keep them attached to the trees. I have a serious deer problem on my property, and these protect the trunks and bark from them and the rabbits.

Good product

wrote ():

I ordered these to protect our new fruit and ornamental trees from damage from animals and the mower. They were easy to install and also easy to cut to length to custom fit each tree. I ordered the 3 foot length so I could cut to length as needed. Would highly recommend them.

Sturdy

wrote ():

Good Design allows tree bark to get air and sunshine because it is an open square mesh. Sturdy enough to keep deer from damaging the bark.

Tree Bark Protectors

wrote ():

Bought to protect young newly planted maple trees from being damaged by young male deer. Easy to install and are working well to fend off deer rubbing on the small tree trunks. Just what we needed for this purpose.

Great product

wrote ():

This was my second order for these protectors. My neighbor recommended them to keep the deer from stripping the bark on my young trees. The protectors are sturdy and I can envision using them year after year. Thanks for a great product.

Great deer thwarting device

wrote ():

I have ten backyard fruit trees, no fence, and lots of deer. I planted the trees bare root two years ago (apples, plums, cherries, peach, apricot). I used the 2' version of these at the start to keep rodents away from the trunks, and made small, round cages out of t-stakes and wire fencing to keep the deer away. The cages were only meant to be temp b/c our neighborhood has rules about landscaping, and the cages were pushing it. This year 8 of the trees were robust enough to take the cages down, prune off the lower branches, and use the 4' protectors. (Usually I would prefer to keep the lower branches on the trees longer, but for the deer/neighborhood rules). The trunk protectors have worked beautifully. The browse height of our deer is around 5', so these protect most of the trunk. On a few of the trees I shifted the old 2' protectors to overlap at the top to get the 5' of protection. Although quite rigid, the protectors are easy enough to take on/off to snip growth from the trunks, etc. And they blend in enough that they look fine in our landscaped neighborhood. I love my orchard! Note: the trunk needs to be pretty straight for the 4' length to work (they are very rigid). If you have a curved trunk, you might consider a couple of the 2' length to allow some articulation.

worthless

wrote ():

These guards are not effective. Because of the rigid holes in the mesh, the deer will take its antlers, insert them in the holes, lifting the guard up the sapling, and then destroy the trunk of the tree. I lost a dozen trees this way. I wish I could attach pictures here. Ironically the trees without guards are untouched. The bucks seem to prefer to rub the trees with the guards. Complete rip off. My advice-- skip this product and shop for hunting equipment.

Perfect Choice

wrote ():

I like these tree guards because they stop deer from rubbing against the trees and since it isn't a solid piece of hard plastic, bugs are not a concern. The price is also great.

Fantastic Tree Guard

Great protection. Keeps deer off fruit trees.

First off, was impressed with the speed that they arrived.Two days after we ordered, had them at our door. They are easy to install, and they really work! Going to order more.

The best tree guard ever made!

wrote ():

I have used the gray and white protectors in the past and when I'd lift them up, they would harbor insects, bees, mice, and even bats. I saw these and decided to try them and they work great to protect the trees and you don't have to worry about what may fly out at you when removing them or lifting them. I use several hundred each year and they can be reused over and over again. You can use twist ties to hold them together, but I use the small 6" plastic zip ties.

Trial Run

wrote ():

I wasn't sure if these tree protectors were what I was looking for so I bought a dozen for 'trial run'. They worked great! I should have bought these years ago instead of trying to make protectors out of fence. They only took a few minutes to install and look nice too. I just bought more!

bark protectors

Work great to protect from deer rubs and girdling by rabbits. Don't get these expecting protection from mice or voles. May injure bark in high wind areas.

Tree Protectors

wrote ():

I have a large number of young dwarf and semi dwarf fruit trees and wanted an easy to apply guard to protect them. One buck likes to use one particular tree as a rub to protect his turf. We have loads of rabbits that are threats to gnaw and girdle the trunks. I have been using corrugated plastic drain pipe but it has been less than satisfactory. This mesh is flexible and easy to install. Being open rather than closed like the corrugated pipe keeps the trunk in view so any insect problems can be readily seen. This is an excellent solution for these reasons.

Best Tree Wrap

These are a nice heavy quality wrap that is easy to wrap around the tree and attach.

Deer Protection

This product keeps the bucks from scraping the bark off my young tree trunks. While no product of this type is pretty, this is a lot less obtrusive than the ugly white spiral tubes that I've used in the past.

It works!

wrote ():

Two years ago we lost all newly planted willows to beaver and most evergreens to deer along with three small hardwood trees to antler attacks last year. Frustrating when I am trying to build a wildlife refuge for the very critters that are denuding the trunks of their hard mast trees. I read that these things are deer and beaver proof yet allow for partial trunk sun scald protection and allow plenty of air flow. Bought enough 48" tree bark protectors to cover everything under 4" in diameter and used small black cabled ties to secure the seam. Some protectors had to be trimmed with wire cutters to fit shorter trees but the fit was tight between the ground and first level of branching so a beaver could not easily pry it up to get to the trunk. Now the wildlife forest refuge looks more like a well groomed urban park. Beautiful but would they work? I waited intrepidly till the annual fall antler rub tree jousting events. My husband observed ...

Good Protection...Inconspicuous

These keep the deer away and yet, are inconspicuous enough that I leave them on year round. A great product!
