Q.Can I Save My Himalayan Birch ?

Zone Scotland | Anonymous added on August 19, 2021 | Answered

I think a deer has eaten my 3 year old birch? Should I cut off the branches with the dead leaves ? Is there a way to save it ? I really really want to save it. Should I feed it with something? Many thanks !
