Make sure you talk to your neighbors about your fence project; They can be a great asset. Often Tichos are willing to provide residential fence cutters suitable for installation. Just be sure they are planted in the same week as cut; Otherwise, they may die of dehydration.
Last but not least, make sure your newly installed fence is free of weeds during the first growing year. Weed competition can lead to serious losses. When starting trees, I think it is better to use corrugated wire than to use fence posts that have a tendency to cut branches and damage, attaching the wire to a newly planted tree. Once your trees are well established in the second year, you can remove the twins and customize the wire.
