We have had a cherry tree in our garden for several years now. In the last few years we have had a good crop of cherries on this tree , but the birds have always got to them first. So this year we have covered the cherry tree with some garden netting to stop the birds eating the cherries.

That's what we do with our blueberry bushes. I don't mind sharing however those birds out number us and can clean the bush off quick. Enjoy your cherries. Have a blessed day

This is our first year getting cherries on our cherry tree, and yesterday the birds were out there enjoying the fruit. We have to net ours as well or we won't get any. The darn birds eat them before they ripen.

That is a good measure to protect cherries. I love them, especially when they are in fruit cakes

This is what happen to every cherry tree, if you do not put a bird net, it's impossible to eat the cherries.

Smart move. Every year I say I'm going to cover my blueberries but then I don't do it.
