Tree Moat

Good News: During the summer, our backyard trees have a fence around them.
Bad News: During the winter, those fences don't fence out the tree-eating rabbits due to high snow levels.
Good News: Yesterday, I shovelled a moat around our trees to protect them from hungry bunnies.

Instead of a "remote", this is a "tree moat". Lessons learned from the past include protecting new trees from our rabbit population. Another lesson learned would be to not leave grass exposed to the harsh cold. Leaving a covering of snow to blanket the grass protects it from freezing temperatures. Current actual temperature outside this morning: -26 F. This is one way North Dakota keeps out the Riff Raff.
