Tree

I have an evergreen tree (not sure what type) and cats keep pooing and digging up the wood chips around it. If I was to replace the wood chip with stones, would this damage the tree?

I would recommend trying a repellent application to deter the cats.
Here is a link with more information.

Rock is not recommended to cover tree or shrub bases.
Rock heats up and then retains the heat. This can damage and even kill the roots.
