During this past winter, we had so much snow on the ground for a long period of time that the resident deer population took up close to my son’s house and ate nearly all the lower greenery off of a large Holly tree in the front yard. The tree is about 8 feet tall but I’m not sure what type it is. At this point it looks like it may be dying at the top where there are still some leaves. What should we do? Is there any way to prune it back, or should we wait and let nature have a chance?
