Post Specimen Tree Planting

I wonder how others protect pot grown specimen trees when planting these out in the woodland where they are subject the vagaries of browsing by deer and damage by squirrells, voles and rabbits.

I use spiral tree guards around the base of the tree to protect against voles & rabbits and then fashion a cage out of stock fencing to protect the growing tip, branches and foliage and then staple this cage to stout posts.

The cages can be reused when the tree has grown well past the deer browse line and has formed a stem strong enough to withstand being pushed over by deer.
