Fog/mist collection for tree seedling establishment in southern California.

I’m currently working on a project establishing pine tree seedlings where a tubular mesh cylinder is installed vertically over the seedling serving the dual purpose of herbivore protection and fog/mist/rain collection during fog and storm events.  This method has doubled the amount of water collected compared seedlings without the mesh.   Location is a mountain pass at 3,800 ft elevation between the coast and desert.  More test results later.
