Fife, United Kingdom
Something has killed one of our acers. The bark at the base has been totally stripped away - is this caused by any insect or a small animal. It coincides with our hedgehog re-appearing after hibernation...could he be the rascal to blame?
NEW PHOTOS ADDED...definitely something has gnawed at the bark at the foot of this acer. Other acer in the background is fine and you can see there are still leaves (albeit now dead) on this one...any ideas?
