Figure 1.
Framed goose-protection structure. Made of wood and chicken wire (hardware cloth), this sturdy cage protects newly planted material while allowing them to establish in a natural setting. The structure is put in place for a period of several months, and then removed once plants are well established.

Figure 2.

Netted goose-protection structure. This is a more cost-effective version than the framed structure depicted above. While still providing reasonable protection from predators, the materials for constructing this device are relatively less expensive.
