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.

Red Pine Trees

I have grown some red pines from seedlings. Last year I transferred them to 5-gallon pots and left them outside all winter. All the under branches have now turned reddish brown, but the tops appear good. Is there anything I can do to restore them back to health?

Try steel shavings, I have pine trees not red pines and my lower branches were turning reddish brown. My husband is a machinist and brought home some steel shavings and we raked them under the tree's and it worked. You might even try steel wool
