Humane and effective, these sturdy baskets are superior to chicken or aviary wire for barring gophers from your plant's roots.

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!

  • Opening is 3/4" across the flats of the hexagon
  • Steel wire strand is 20-guage and galvanized before weaving because the weaving process creates cracks in the galvanization. This is done so that the wire will breakdown sooner and root girdling will be avoided.
  • Open size is 17" diameter x 20" deep
  • 30 gauge galvanized sheet metal seams

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 3-5 years. The root system can establish and then the basket breaks down and does not compromise mature growth of the roots.

Baskets available several sizes, or in rolls of gopher wire

A must for those with gophers

These baskets are easy to use and the perfect thing to use on your new bare root fruit trees. Why take a chance with a new tree. These are insurance the tree will be protected in case the critters decide to come over and check it out. I have had gopher come and dig circles around the baskets (which makes the soil great for the roots later after they give up).

Very easy to use, and thus far, no gophers! Arrived quickly. I bought 24 and plan to buy more. I wish I had discovered this product earlier in my planting plan.

gophers go away please

Glad to see you carrying this product! Use them on ALL our trees, so far it has worked. I can see the gopher tunnel up to the basket and no damage to the tree.

This was our first purchase from Grow Organic online and it was great. The gopher guard baskets are exactly as advertised, easy to use, and the fact that they eventually deteriorate over a 5-7 year period is a plus.
