peach tree help?

When our peach tree began putting out fruit, we wrapped the tree in netting to keep the birds away as we had trouble with that last year. So, now we have a tree full of fruit - about the size of golf balls - yeah ! Can I safely remove the netting or will the birds eat the maturing fruit??

All I can say is commercial growers don't put netting up. You should be OK, but it will not hurt to leave it either.

A long bamboo could help remove the netting.but I am sure the birds more like the maturing fruit.

Birds don't bother my peaches until they are days from being ripe. Even then they don't destroy many,maybe a dozen. Blasted squirrels on the other hand will move in and wipe out the whole years production in just a couple days. I HATE SQUIRRELS!
