This comes to us from the National Wildlife Federation. Here’s the link; http://blog.nwf.org/2013/11/6-excuses-to-avoid-yard-work-this-fall/?utm_content=buffer276a6&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Begin Rabbit Protection Now
Rabbits may begin to nibble on newly planted trees and shrubs this time of year. Protect your investment now through this winter with at least 2-foot-tall cylinders of 1-inch-mesh, chicken wire, or similar barrier. Other control methods include plastic tree wraps and liquid rabbit repellents sprayed on the plants. (Ward Upham)
