It’s that time of year again. The whitetail bucks are out rubbing their antlers on your trees! Young trees, from 1”-6” in diameter, need to be protected with white plastic tree wrap to a height of 4 feet. It’s essential to use white tree wraps that reflect the harsh winter sunlight; using something like black drain tile causes temperature fluctuations that can lead to bark damage or death and premature breaking of dormancy. Tree wraps also protect your trees from sun scald and critter damage throughout winter, so leave them on until spring. Protected trees are happy trees!
