Protecting the Saskatoon berry crop

My dad, the lover of Saskatoon berries, planted two trees in the back yard so he could eat his favorite berry. After he passed on, my mom had my Uncle Laurent build her a cage around her tree so that the birds could not eat all of her berries. That cage has a door for us to get in and out of and it has saved the huge Saskatoon crop my mom gets off of one of her trees every year. 
We now have to trim the branches that grow through the chicken wire so the cage does not get destroyed but it's still study after all these years and it's still doing it's job. Takes an old farmer like my Uncle to know how to build something to last a long time!
