Wrap Tree Trunk With Clear Plastic to Prevent Squirrel Damage

Squirrels have been eating the bark off our red bud tree and have damaged it considerably. After trying almost every suggestion on the internet, we came upon a solution. We wrapped a 3 foot wide piece of 4 mil clear plastic around the trunk of the tree, approximately 2 feet off the ground. The squirrels can no longer get up into the tree. They try but cannot succeed. No harm to the tree or the squirrels.
