Hooking electric fence to trees?

Is their something to buy to hook the fencing to trees? We cleared out the woods to bring our gelding home but all the way around their are trees.

We just use screw in insulators in the trees.

Sure, a lot of folks use available trees to attach their fencing. There's a type of eyelet you can buy where the fencing threads through it and the wire doesn't touch the the tree.

Any farm supply store that has fencing materials should be able to help you with the correct purchases.

I am a dork....I used to collect porcelain and glass insulators..lol

When I realized that the ones I have aren't worth anything I still kept them and used them for hot wire.

But yes, they make the plastic ones you can nail to a tree or a wood post.
