Let's not forget about the beavers that live in the Mississippi around Nicollet island. A couple of years ago on my morning walk along the river I counted 105 young trees that had been cut down by a pair of beavers. That's just the ones that I counted. There were many more that had also succumbed to these rodents.

I've seen them used with a great success rate here in the San Francisco Bay Area for about 20 years ... not sure if the manufacturer is the same, but they look awfully similar. Best use appears to be for smaller plant material ... whips, liners in large-scale plantings in the urban-wildlife interface. Best wishes for success with your planting!
