I'm curious about where you sourced your trees from. Somewhere nearby?
I'm also curious about your tree guards. Are those winter-only? It's difficult for me to tell from the video but they look pretty solid (also pretty tall? Are they a lot taller than your trees currently?). If they are winter-only, do you have any plans for protection during the rest of the year?
I got most of my tree from Akiva Silver at Twisted Tree Nursery in western New York. It was the best option in balancing the varieties, proximity and price.
The tree tubes are a year round deal for the first couple of years. They are mostly for deer browse. They are translucent and pretty solid. I got them from TreePro. https://www.treepro.com/miracle-tube-tree-shelters/
I also over-bought when I ordered mine for a quantity discount. If you're only interested in a couple, I would be happy to sell you a few at cost.
Where are you based? I'm just outside of St. Johnsbury.
