Where i live my trees are very vulnerable to wind and when it gets windy i move my trees off the shelf and on the ground but when i do this squirrels either dig up the pot or chew the bark off the tree. Is there anything i can do to try and repel the squirrels? Thanks for the help.

Black pepper seems to do the trick

How about erecting a windbreak and keeping your bonsais on their benching? I use a trellis and grow climbers through it - very rarely do I feel strong winds in my bonsai garden.
