Have not used black corrugated. I would think that would be hot in the summer and sunlight cannot get through to a 2' trees leaves, if you where using a 4' to 5' tube for deer protection. I'm sure it would be fine for a 8'' to 10'' rabbit guard and then fence. Go to planta.com and conservation services inc.com and read. Like I said earlier I think Plantra are the best.
