Rabbits Eating Lower Bark of Apple Trees

Anonymous added on March 5, 2011 | Answered

I have two beautiful apple trees. They are about 3 years old. Rabbits have eaten off the bark of both trees (100% around the tree for about 3 feet). Can the trees be salvaged?

Unfortunately, it is unlikely the trees can be saved if they have been that severely girdled. If you are very attached to these trees, I would call a local arborist to look at them and they may be able to help.
