Stop the gopher destruction!

Humane and effective, these sturdy baskets are superior to chicken or aviary wire for barring gophers from your plant's roots. The 3/4 mesh, 20 gauge wire is galvanized for maximum corrosion resistance.

Just set the basket in the plant hole with the green wire above-ground to block the overland route. Put the plant inside, backfill with soil and you're done!

These baskets offer appropriate root protection whether you are planting in a wide and shallow hole, or a deep and narrow hole.

For initial planting of trees and shrubs, use the Root Guard Gopher Baskets instead of Gopher Wire. The Gopher Baskets are made with micro-fissures in them so they break down after 2-5 years. The root system can establish and then the basket breaks down and does not compromise mature growth of the roots.

Tree Size Gopher Basket

Give your young bare root trees a fighting chance! It's worth the extra work and money to put your trees in gopher baskets. Gophers can wreak havoc on the roots.

Accomodates Roots Well

This basket is great and accommodated the roots of my large two year old bare root trees easily. Exclusion like these baskets are the only sure way to keep those gophers from eating tender tree roots.
