Tree wrapping is used to protect individual trees or areas of vegetation from being cut and removed by beavers. When installed correctly, with the correct materials, this tool is effective to protect prized trees as well as large areas of vegetation such as restoration sites with newly planted vegetation for example. It is sometimes referred to as 'tree wiring' and is considered a type of 'exclusion fencing.' Like many of the other tools, fencing requires maintenance. This will ensure the trees do not become choked by the wire as they grow.
