Description

Browsing by deer on planted and naturally regenerated hardwood seedlings is one of the greatest obstacles to seedling establishment in many parts of the central hardwood region. Research on tree plantings in Indiana shows that only 60% of planted trees survive to age five. Researchers at the Hardwood Tree Improvement & Regeneration Center (HTIRC) and other university and private foresters have found plastic mesh deer fences provide good deer protection during plantation establishment. This 9-page article provides step-by-step instructions for building your own durable and effective mesh deer exclusion fence.
