ABC Wednesday: N for nets




Nets surround a tree so that animals don't trunks and kill the tree.

This is a neat 'N' post for ABC Wednesday We saw several trees with similar protection when we visited Biltmore last week.

Ginny said...

Very good idea.

As George said, we saw protection nets around many of the trees at Biltmore... Guess the 'critters' will destroy them if allowed...

Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Betsy

Very interesting netting. Is it metal, wire, or rope? I like the pattern.

That's a great idea!

Good idea! We have several cats which like to sharpen their claws on my trees. I am a catlover but my trees must be left alone!
It was great meeting Kay and we had a nice chat outside the souvenir shop.
Yes Napoleon was a very important person for history. Thanks to him we have the metric system. Great Britain was never conquered by him so they still have yards, miles, inches and feet.

interestng that it's NECESSARY.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

That's a neat photo. I like all the different textures next to each other.

We have seen this type of protection to the trees often, but have never seen such serious "net" protection!!

Francisca said...

Hah... there must a lot of climbing animals around there then if there is a need to spend on netting the trees for protection!

[Oh dear, you are right, I forgot to sing, "The hills are alive...! And I love that musical. LOL. I'll be in Austria until next Tuesday, just for the Easter break. Then I go back to work in Bucharest.]

We also do that here so the deer won't eat the newly planted tree. Happy Wednesday!

Nifty post on nets for the letter "N"

Reader Wil said...

Hi Ann I made a mistake: we had several cats, but sadly they have been dead for many years now. Thanks anyway for the net joke! Lol!

Nets, just what I need. The blueberries are nearing ripe and I need to cover them before the birds get them.

Tammie Lee said...

I have seen netted trees to keep animals from nesting in them, like rats.

EG Wow said...

Great N-post, Ann. We have to protect young trees from rabbits. :)
