Answer: Since you already have chicken wire cylinders around the trees you can use them to help protect your trees this winter. Simply fill the cylinders with fallen leaves or straw and the trees will be safe and warm during the winter months. Don't completely cover the seedlings, but do work the insulation around the sides of the cylinders to block the wind which can cause dessication. Leave the top open. When snow falls it will add some more insulation and your little trees should be fine.
