Thanks for all of this. I have done some researching and now I understand things a lot better. And, as well, why my posts now keep getting deleted. I really like you guys. I do. But, yep. Some of those things I learned make a lot of sense. Thanks.
I don't have years to learn how to post here at permies. So I will be posting very little from now on.
An update:

The reflective rolls that Ty mentioned seemed to work best for me. I trialed a long sheet between fence posts. It did well, with wind being the only issue, ripping the material away from the staples along the bottom. I put in a board that I had nearby to hold it, then stapled again and it stayed, but did lose some reflectivity, so I'd likely make up specific frame pieces to pin it down better in the future. No issues with birds, as it's reflective, but not in a mirror way.



I also did try a mirror, but it really didn't seem to brighten things up much. And I did purchase two first surface mirrors, but they're really small (all I was willing to spend) and so don't give the reflectiveness the big rolls do.

Hey that's very cool. I don't think I knew that before.

Here's a few pics of my crabapple, that look a lot like the pics here:

That would be so very cool. But a little outside of my hardiness zone 3. I'm quite enamoured with the fact a prickly pear grows here, so I'm not offended by its defences, just very cautious with it. I'm just hoping to grow enough to be able to try some for food purposes.

The thing with Saskatoons is they usually have a very shrubby appearance: Saskatoons at a U-Pick.

However, yours may be trained to one trunk, like a crabapple tree, which is of itself very cool.
