Winter Care of Young Trees
I have several newly planted trees. Should I wrap them for the winter?
Research has shown that tree wraps are not effective at preventing sunscald, frost cracks, and animal damage. A fence of hardware cloth sunk several inches into the soil and at least 4 feet tall will help prevent animal damage. Proper planting, pruning, and care will reduce the risk of frost cracks. If you decide to wrap your tree apply it in fall and remove it each spring. Wrapping the trunks year round or for more than 2 years can actually increase the risk of damage.
