    Might want to protect the trunk of the tree.
    Red Pepper paint or screen them. Rabbits and mice are worse then deer sometimes.
    Looks healthy! Nice looking clover too.

    I have some trees that are about a year behind and some that I just planted. Do u think I could use paint on them or wait until they are older? I have hardware cloth protecting the base right now

    Personally I use screen until they get a few years in the ground. Then I would paint them.

    It worked well, but i cant claim the credit. IowaBowHunter1983 lent me the tip to mix in a little at a time. The drill worked well.

    Surprisingly with the late frost looking like a banner year.

    Some of the 90+ apples I planted this year. These ones are nursery stock. Lost a few but for the most part doing well. [​IMG]
