Q.Will The Top Of My Larch Tree Grow Back?

Zone Clarkston WA 99403 | wsch added on March 16, 2024 | Answered

Deer rubbed and killed the top of my larch tree. The tree was about five feet tall now it’s about two and a half feet. I made a cut and zip tied main tree to a heathy branch upwards. I am not sure if it will grow a new main trunk. Planted when it was six inches tall so I would like to keep it. What should I do to get a straight looking tree. I know it will not be good as new. Thanks Willliam

Oh, I hate when that happens. Likely, it will still grow. You may need to stake the tree, and tie the new branch to make it stay straight. As far as the deer issue goes- This will be controlled by, either, repellents or physical barriers.
