Q.Madrone tree leaves cutting (02)

Anonymous added on November 23, 2018 | Answered

Update to my previous question is that I finally found that in addition to squirrels, crows are the ones doing most off the leaf cutting damage to my Madrone tree. The big question, is there a crow repellent (like an electronic / ultrasonic buzzer that ward off birds?

Hi I am having a major battle with some kind of ghost-like animal in my backyard. Squirrels or birds are chewing off my large Madrone tree leaves and young-shoots, so much so, that there are bare branches on the tree and at times bushels full of leaves on the ground. As the attached page shows, to prevent anything to crawl up the tree, I wrapped a 40” wide 1/8” clear and slippery plastic around the trunk… but still, by each morning there are freshly cut leaves on the ground. At least I like to know if other people are having the same problem. And if there is a solution? Thanks, Leafless in Seattle.

I don't have any experience with this but if you do an Internet search with the key term "crow repellent" you will find some options.
