Viburnum Shrubs

Damaged Tree Bark


Anonymous added on May 10, 2018 | Answered

Cats have clawed the trunk of my viburnum tree sharpening their claws. I've duct taped a shower rod cover over the damaged trunk to prevent further claw damage, but am concerned that the damage already inflicted may kill tree. What can be done to "heal" my small viburnum?

I would not use duct tape as this does not allow the shrub to breath.

Making a cage of wire or hardware cloth may be a better solution.
