For optimal protection against damage from rodent chewing, we offer steel core tension cable as an alternative to monofilament wire. Like monofilament, this wire will support the top and bottom of your deer fence for a professional look, and protect the vulnerable bottom edge from chewing and digging; however, steel core consists of PVC-coated 8-gauge galvanized aircraft cable, braided from seven strands of seven wires. The steel cable is completely chew-proof, excellent for fencing applications where smaller garden pests are extremely active and non-steel wire may fail. The PVC coating matches the color of the poly fence and extends the longevity of the steel by protecting it from weather exposure. Steel core tension wire is the strongest tension wire offered by DeerBusters.com, and is recommended for use where chewing is a continual problem. Also, consider using steel core tension wire where added strength may be necessary in the fence-for example, where tree limbs may fall or rest on the fence line. This product comes in a 666-foot roll.
Steel core tension wire is offered in lengths of 333 feet, 1,000 feet, and 3,000 feet for your convenience. Steel core tension wire is compatible with all 8-gauge connectors and tighteners.
Plants will be shipped semi-bare-root (with little soil) from December to April. As the plants are dormant (sleeping), it is perfectly safe to send them bare-root. Winter is the safest and the best time to ship plants.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
