Q.

Will a vole damage a fig sapling?

Hello, I have a newly established fig tree sapling (3cm trunk) in the garden which now has a small hole (3cm diameter) beneath which I assume has been dug by a mouse or vole. Is it likely that the animal will harm the tree or can I just let it be? Thank you

Yes voles and other rodents can damage the tree. It's best to control them.
