I purchased my first deer cage 4 years ago to protect a newly planted Japanese maple in my front yard. It is a wonderful product! I have two 65 pound dogs that like to run through the middle of shrubs, rub their bodies against them, and sit on them. I had a small Sugar Sumac I wanted to plant in my backyard but knew the dogs would make short work of it. I decided to try a deer cage around it. Lo and behold, it works! The deer cage is also a dog cage!
My new deer cages were easy to put up and are effectively protecting my shrubs from the ravages of hungry deer.
I have tried every possible deer deterrent. This is the only reliable way to stop them in a residential area.
Sprays don’t always work; “chicken wire” cages don’t work; lights/noise machines don’t work. Try this you’ll thank yourself for saving money in the long run.
I recently had a 5 foot Japanese maple tree planted. We have heavy deer pressure, so I needed a way to protect the young tree. The Tree Cage was shipped promptly and arrived in good condition. I used the pictures on the website to determine how the clips are applied, which worked fine. I inserted the 3 stakes into the ground. Due to it being spring storm season, I added additional landscape staples to the base of the Cage to be sure our wind storms won’t lift it. I recommend the Cage and would order it again if needed.
Don't take our word for it!
Thanks to Ramsay's Deer Cages I now have glorious roses without having to dash out and spray as soon as it stops raining! The cages have "saved" azaleas, young evergreens, and a lovely serviceberry. And they are almost invisible, easy to install, and stand up to strong winds. It's great to be able to landscape with what I want instead of what the deer won't eat!
I placed a Deer Cage around a young tree this past fall. In the two previous years there was evidence of browsing on the lower limbs and some scraping of the trunk. This winter and early spring it has not been touched. The Deer Cage is lightweight and securely anchored with the attached stakes. Opening and closing the enclosure is quick and uncomplicated which facilitates access for weeding or mulching around the base. The height protects the lower limbs and the wide diameter allows for a good bit of spread. The dark green wire enclosure is sturdy but virtually disappears when viewed from a few feet away. I will certainly provide this protection for the next small tree that I plant in order to get it off to a good start.
Recently there were 10 deer in my yard and over the last decade hundreds of my precious plants have been totally destroyed by deer. I become so discouraged when I plant some new item and it is immediately destroyed by deer. I have tried many different approaches to avoiding the damage deer inflict on small trees and shrubs. I have found that the Deer Cage really works and it is aesthetically pleasing and not difficult to maneuver and install. It is such a relief to know it will protect new plantings and yet it is not harmful to the deer or other wildlife. I recommend it without reservation.
The Deer Cage is easy to use and really works. Several of our young fruit trees were munched the same evening we planted them, but the one that was lucky enough to get the Deer Cage is thriving and happy. In my opinion, it's worth the time and the money to protect your trees.
I installed one of these last fall and it's definitely doing a good job! Previously I used old tomato cages, but the deer would periodically get their heads stuck in them and ruin the cages. The Deer Cage is a great way to get young shrubs up and growing to the point where deer browsing can no longer cause significant damage.
