The Q&A Archives: Plum Tree

Question: How do i keep the birds from picking plums off my tree before its time to pick them. They would get to the size of a marble and the next thing you know, they're all gone.

Answer: Bird netting is about your only defense. Drape it over the tree before the fruits begin to develop color and that will keep the birds from stealing your plums. Don't forget to secure the bottom or birds will still have access and may even get caught in the branches.
