We moved from WI to N MN lastWe moved from WI to N MN last fall. In WI we had pear trees that the woodpeckers were destroying. I wrapped the trunks and that helped but wondered what I would do when the birds started on the branches? Now that we moved I have a crab apple tree that the woodpeckers are making holes on the branches. Last fall the tree looked bad - black leaves. My concern is that I want to put in apple trees but not to feed the birds. Any ideas would be appreciated.
