Ooh that's not too good, will they survive do you think?

I expect the snow drove them to desperate measures.

Hope they survive - both the rabbits and the trees.

It sounds like they were looking for food in the snow.

I don,t think that they survive once they take the bark from all the way round the trunk , it will be interesting to see !

I wonder if painting them with something would help heal the trunks.

No Ams they dont belong to us .. they are growing up the track leading to our property .. My hubby has put some wire round the ones that aren,t to badly affected , we will have to wait and see if its to late to save them !
