Every year I stay busy most of the summer oulling up small oak tree seedlings--from blown seeds of oak trees. Is there a way I can control them so they won't take over my lawn?

My dogs have chewed the bark from bottom to 6' up on a 35' oak and the trunk is approx. 15 inches across. Now the leaves are turning brown. Any suggestions, as I don't want to see this tree die.
We have a pin oak that is about 13 ft. at the base, then about 10 ft. up, it split into two large sections. One of the sections split away from the tree and now there is a giant section of the trunk missing and half of the tree is still standing. I would like to know if we can save it and what we have to do to help the open wound on the tree heal. Our tree guy says the tree is saved, but with so much of the trunk missing, I am worried with it being so tall (50 plus ft. ) that not enough base can support what is left of the tree.

My neighbor has an oak tree which hangs over our driveway and is dropping little specs of sap continuously. Is this going to stop, or can I expect this all summer?

When a tree grows, do the lowest branches on the tree move up higher? I have a young Pin Oak with low branches 3 feet off the ground.
If the lower branches are a problem, you can remove them.
I have an oak tree in the that has a metal chain through its trunk. Near the chain it seems to be leaking a black sap. It looks like oil. Is there any way to fix this? The chain can not be removed.

I live in south Louisiana. I have 2 trees (live oak and pear-flowering) I recently planted (in Feb). They are approximately a year old. Apparently, the 'lawn boy' has damaged the tree with mower or weed eater and has left abrasions on the base of the tree. Will these trees live and be healthy? They have showed no signs of dying, but what can I do to 'repair' the damage?
