cherry trees

I was wondering if you get any quastions on how to keep the birds out the trees. The reason i ask is becouse i heard of an old trick. Putting a thick rope about 10ft long up in the tree. From what i was told, the birds think its a snake.

Re: cherry trees

Garden stores sell fake owls, snake flash tape, etc. which may work to some extent. Netting as mentioned can keep the birds out, but can get difficult to use on a large tree. The ever popular propane cannons work in a commercial application, but probably will annoy the neighbors and the rest of your household.:rolleyes:
For us it's been the bird get what's up high & we get what we can reach with a ladder & I get to hone my marksmanship on the squirrels.
