Using Trees For Fence Installation

Posted by Jennifer Smith on 26th Oct 2018

Nature can be a great tool during the fence installation process. For properties with a lot of trees, this may seem like a deterrent; but in fact, the trees can be used as fence posts and can help easily attach the fence mesh material.

When using trees, fence installers will need to use barbed staples, also known as 'U-nails.' While often used for woven wire fencing, any type of fencing can use barbed staples.

If homeowners are working with Steel Hex Web material, or Hexagone Fencing, remember to apply the staples in the 'B' line of the honeycomb. This is the strongest section of the fence and add strength. 

Barbed staples can even be used along plant root systems to hold down the fence and prevent burrowing animals from sneaking underneath the fence. 

Don't look at nature as a deterrent. It can make fence installation run smoothly and seamlessly.
