Q.Deer Damage on Red Pine
I have some Red Pine that I have planted only to have a buck polish his antlers on the trunk of one of the trees. The tree is about 2-1/2 inches or so in diameter. He has rubbed the bark off all around the tree about 18 inches long. Can I repair this and save the tree?

If the bark is gone all the way around in that wide of a swath, it is unlikely that the tree will survive.
