Fruit Tree Bird Net Frame

contest winner icon

Hubby and I made this frame out of 2 inch plastic irrigation piping attached to metal 'star' pickets. This size pipe fits snuggly on to the ends of the pickets, sliding easily over.

This made attaching and removing the netting over our cherry tree much easier. Thanks to the net, we enjoyed a full harvest of sweet cherries this year.

If we don't net our cherry tree we don't get any fruit at all. The blackbirds eat every single one!

My husband and I think your idea is excellent. No more picking netting out of the twigs and leaves!
