I love these plum trees. They’re so much happier now that we’re practicing our love with them. As arborists.

  1. Oh you give me such hope. We are planning on planting figs down our slope, do you think the deer will share?

    • Probably not if you don’t deter them. The living with wildlife presenter at my Master Gardener training suggested that you protect new seedlings while they’re establishing with fencing to keep the deer and rabbits away. Then to dissuade them by stringing fishing line at chest height a few feet away from the trees. The deer will walk into it without seeing it and be startled- causing them to run away before they have an opportunity to nibble on your young growth. As for the fruit? They’ll leave what they can’t reach. : )

      • Thanks, I have relayed the info to my master fence builder and fig tree planter. He just finished the 8′ high mesh fence around the raised beds that captures and kills snakes unfortunately.
