i just planted new avocado trees. I just got the sun shade up, but need to protect it from getting beaten by the wind. What material would you recommend? (Screen, wood, fabric, vinyl with holes punched, etc). Any tips appreciated.

I would think anything to block wind would have to be solid not a screen or fabric since it would rip.

I'm using some old scaffolder's debris netting, the wind can really cut across the field, it's only a mile from the sea.

a natural wind block would always be my pick I love Beach hedging or something I have been planting a lot lately has been new Zealand privet. It grows fast so you get a wind brake within 2 years. It may not be ideal for everyone but a hedge is best in my book what ever variety or plant mix it is made of. Its great for birds and does not blow away in a storm:)
