I got $80.00 tied up in the fencing for 100 trees. They are 28" high and 1' wide. When the trees out grow them, I'll install a rigid stake and more fencing right on top. It's more permanent than the tubes, but more work than just sliding a tube over the top. I'm sure both methods will work just fine.bake545 said:Bushmaster,bushmaster said:I figured as much Dutch.

I'm not sure what your budget is or how many trees you planted but I used the protectors in the link below this year for shrubs that I got from Howard Nursery. You have to buy fairly large quantities but they were only $1 a piece including shipping. Much cheaper than fencing or the other tree tubes. I will be using these types on about everything I plant in the future as well.
As someone else stated I'm shooting quality over quantity. I've done the quantity thing and it works for some species but not for others.
