Tree Wrap - Trunk wrap on young trees prevents the green cortex from photosynthesizing. There are no data to show that trunk wraps prevent "frost" cracks or “sun” scald. Picture to left is a young tree. As far as the wire goes, we use wire mesh and make a large circle out to the drip line of newly planted trees, i.e., for deer.
See "Trunk Wrap".
