Background information and definitions
Tree nets can be used to close off tree canopy pathways or other access in order to protect fruit crops from being accessed by mammals. Netting is cheap to install but can be labour intensive for subsistence farmers. If successful in protecting fruit crops, use of nets could reduce incentives for carrying out lethal control of mammals.
