Have got some tree guards to fix up. Spec is 4posts to make a square, netting, two strands of barb then two lines on rails.

Has anyone got any idea or tips on putting these up. What's the best wire to use X net??. Also to get the wire nice and tight are gripples going to be the best bet. Thanks in advance ?

Just steeple wire on tight. It wont stay tight anyway. Put a rail across top of net, below top barb and near bottom of net.
4ft not enough to stop cattle eating trees btw

Flipping Glastir spec is 2m per side. Rail sizes? 4.8 or 3.6 so either too short to get two out of or an offcut that is useless ?

Built these a month for cattle 3.6mx3.6mx1.2m high. 125_150mmx2.1m corners and 100_125mmx1.8m intermediates. 100mmx50mm rails.
33 in total and have built others to same spec for same council and they work.

If you can access 4.8 m rails then why not make them 2.4x2.4 square. Bang the posts in using the rails laid out on the floor as a template. Nail the top rail on at your desired height, this will strengthen your square. Hard staple your netting onto your post, use a mighty fencer, lever type device to tighten your wire. Nail on your second row of rails at your desired height.
Happy days, good luck with it.
