Norfolk, United Kingdom
I bought two Mexican weeping pines a couple of years ago and planted them out last autumn. I staked them and also put rabbit protectors around the stems. However, going for a walk today I now see that the &^^%$ deer have chewed off the bark above the rabbit protectors. Are the trees now effectively dead? There is a small sliver of bark left that connects all the way, but it is very small. I have altered my feelings towards deer!!
