Commercial-quality Small Fruit Tree Netting 3m x 5m.
New regulations now apply to the purchase and use of bird netting in the state of Victoria. If you are located in Victoria, please ensure your use of this netting meets the requirements below prior to purchase.
In Victoria, it is prohibited to purchase and use bird netting with an aperture size greater than 5mm x 5mm at full stretch to protect household fruiting plants. Failure to comply with this regulation could result in a fine. A 2-penalty unit infringement notice will result in a fine of approximately $363 and a court-applied penalty for a breach of these regulations can be up to 15 penalty units ($2726 approx.).
Animal Welfare Victoria describes ‘household’ fruit-trees, vegetable gardens, or other fruiting plants as:
- grown at residential premises in an urban or suburban area; or
- if grown at residential premises in a semi-rural or rural area, grown primarily for personal use (even if some excess produce is shared or sold).
This bird netting IS NOT suitable for household use in the state of Victoria. If you are looking for bird netting for household use, click here.
This bird netting can be legally purchased for commercial use in the state of Victoria. Commercial use includes commercial orchards, vineyards or fruit and vegetable produce businesses. Where the objective of growing the trees or plants is to produce a commercial harvest for sale, with the intent to make a profit, the scale of such an activity should be consistent with other commercial orchards, vineyards or produce businesses.
If you reside in Victoria, you will be required to affirm that this netting is being purchased for commercial use only prior to your order being filled. Dine a Chook will NOT be held liable if this product is purchased or used in a manner not permitted by Victorian law.
There is something quite rewarding about growing fruit at home. The excitement builds as your mangos, citrus or apples come alive before your eyes. Equally, there is nothing more disappointing than coming out to see the fruit has been eaten.
Dine A Chook offers a range of commercial quality bird netting that is made to protect your fruit. Made using knitted polyethylene it offers protection from wildlife including possums, flying foxes and birds. The material is also wildlife-friendly so if an animal or bird becomes tangled it tends not to cut the animal, unlike other forms of inferior netting.
UV treatment ensures it will last for up to 10 years. Also, it won't fray if cut to size.

Using Your Fruit Tree Net
This fruit tree net is cut to size for trees and bushes smaller than 1 m in height. It may also be suitable for protecting up to 3 closely planted berry bushes or grape vines at a time.
To use the fruit tree net, drape over the tree or shrub you wish to protect. Netting is more effective, will last longer and is more wildlife-friendly if secured. You can secure your netting by:
- Tying the netting to the base of the tree
- Weighing down the netting edges
- Securing the netting to a garden frame
Placing our Bird Netting is easy. Simply drape the rectangle of netting over the tree or shrub you wish to protect. It's that easy. You can also use it on a frame over a vegetable patch.
