Took a chance on not caging a couple trees and I lost the bet. I guess the deer like the taste of my pear tree leaves.

They started doing that to my plum and apple trees earlier this spring. I fenced them up right then and there

Just wait until fall and bucks rub those trees to death. For whatever reason, bucks LOVE rubbing on fruit trees.

I have got away with it in the past because of all the clearcut around me. Plenty of other browse. The deer population in the area has exploded the last year or two so I guess I need to be a little more careful with my trees now.
