If you are in an area with deer or other exotics, we strongly recommend that you place a mesh tree guard around the trunk for the first year or so. Deer, especially in the fall, love to rub on new trees. We also recommend using a tree guard if you have cattle, especially bulls, with the tree. The guards are inexpensive ($5) and we usually have them in stock and will sell them to you at our cost.
For area with very large exotics like Elk, Zebra, Eland, etc. the tree guards are not sufficient as these tall animals like to eat new trees. We have one customer that has had very good success protecting his trees by staking one 16' bull panel around the tree.
