Getting a covering for fruit trees is an effective and low-maintenance way to improve the yield of your favorite produce. Haxnicks Fruit Tree Covers by Tierra Garden have a fine mesh that is large enough to let in moisture and sunlight but protects from harsh rainfall, hail and frost. It is also small enough to avoid trapping birds, bats and other unsuspecting wildlife.
Fruit net covers have an easy-to-use "lift over" design with a sealable opening that protects fruit from cherry worms, aphids, fruit fly, wasps, birds and other pests without the need for chemical sprays. Use the net in the early spring to protect blossoms and then remove it for pollination. Add them again in the summer and autumn to protect fruits from harsh weather and wildlife. You can even use tree covers for winter protection against heavy snow, cold and wind. Greenhouse Megastore has several fruit tree cover sizes that offer a quality safeguard against weather, animals and insects.

This tree net saved our apple crop, which in past years was completely stolen or wrecked by squirrels. The net easily covered the whole tree, and we fastened it snugly around the trunk. With the zippered opening it was easy(ish) to put on. In early September we removed it and harvested. Next year we will try to make it easier to untie at the bottom so we can stretch the harvest out. We are just very happy that this net is available.
