Cherry tree protection

With last year being our first year here, we were discovering what trees we have and it wasn’t until too late that we realised we had a cherry tree in the orchard, nestled amongst the apple trees.  By too late I mean the birds got to them before us.
This cherry tree was really productive as were some others we have.  This tree however is smaller and easier to pick than the others, so we have claimed this one and we’ll just have to see if the birds beat us to the other ones!
The tree before and after netting was put in place.  I hope we get a decent crop again this year, one we can actually harvest though!

  2. What a luxury to have fresh cherries. I think we've planted 6 or 7 fruit trees in the 5 years we've been here. They've all died or were eaten by deer but for one apple tree. The irony being the property is full of apple trees and i only bought that one as it was on sale too cheap to pass up. It's a dream to have a cherry tree. Maybe I'll buy one and put my energy into babying it along.
