I had a few nice cedar trees that they hooked. They were about 6' to 7' feet tall and now the top 4' to 5' feet are dead. I thought they might make it but now I don't think it's worth it anymore. I would rather start off with trees that I protect. These cedars started on their own and I never thought I had to protect them because we don't like to touch them (prickly); it never even crossed my mind that deer would not have the same problem.
