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

Great product

These baskets were pretty easy to install. I recommend you watch the video on installation. We have a terrible gopher problem these Seem to be preventing the gophers from destroying the trees so far. Time will tell.

Great item!

I had been searching a long time for a solution to our gopher problem, but all other guards I had found do not consider root girdling as an issue! This one does! Thanks!

Make the hexagon smaller and you would have a good product

Someone needs to inform the manufacturer that young gophers can pass through the mesh! I\'ve seen a continuous tunnel on either side of the mesh and the only way that could happen is if the gopher passed through the hexagon. Also, my cats caught and killed a young gopher and I was able to drop it without pushing, (just gravity alone) easily through the hexagon. I still use it as it does exclude the larger full grown gophers. However, it\'s not quite "the perfect size" mesh that the company advertises.

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.
