My mother isn't willing to put up a gate or pen as far as blockades are concerned.
Last night I remembered that I have a bottle of Bitter Yuck! leftover from my last dog's hectic upbringing. I sprayed the lowest branches and the lowest area to the tree skirt. When I let Cherry out again (her play area is near the tree, unfortunately) she paid little attention to the tree... When she did go over to nip at a branch, though, I clapped my hands loudly and my Mom and I said "No!" at the same time. Cherry moved away from the tree, looked over at us, then merrily went on her way.
That was just last night, though. We'll have to see how this plans out.
I'm gonna have to be super diligent about cleaning up those pine needles, though.
