I have an upcoming 🍎 tree in the back yard. I got a dozen apples from it this year.....then this happens.... I hope it can recover from the damage!

Is that a buck rubbing or are they nibbling the bark?

This one "was" big enough to remove the fence I had around it... this deer was a little more aggressive than most...  :rotflmao:

I reckon his bed post looks an awful lot like that little apple tree trunk.  Well, mine does, anyway.

You have to protect them like this.  Haven't lost a tree to deer yet.

Yes, apple and plum trees. I have quite a few of them and like I said, have not lost a single one to the deer.

HD. I thin if you put a wrap around the tree where it is rubbed off it may recover. Do it now while it is dormant.
