Tortured Dogwoods

Zone Levant ,KS | nudson.psb added on May 19, 2018 | Answered

The rabbits jumped on to my dogwoods, broke them and ate all the foliage. Will my trees come back? Or will they be bushes? They are just twigs sticking out of ground now.They were like 3 weeks old doing awesome... Thanks, Pamela

It sounds like they ate the whole thing! I would protect the remaining tree and give them time. Waiting it out is the only real option.
