I am excitedly looking forward to making our own cider in a few years. And we happen to have a good pollinator -- a Red Rome Beauty -- very near where we'll be planting the Orleans. Also, we'll be planting Stark's American Cranberry plants around the bottoms of both apple trees.

We had an old Orleans appletree on family farm in Maine in 1960's; huge sweet apples that didn't turn brown and made pink cider using antique press.

BEST ANSWER: If it's to protect the trunk, I don't see why not. Stark Bro's even has Tree Guards you can use: http://www.starkbros.com/products/tools-and-supplies/tree-accessories/stark-tree-guards

Orleans
Topped this tree fairly severely at planting. It has grown in an orderly fashion since, not very vigorous and no blossoms yet. The tree is pretty healthy but seems attractive to leafhoppers? lots of skeletonized leaves last fall (the only apple amongst 70 trees I noticed this on). Growing well this spring so we'll see.
