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.
