We have a maple tree that has been damaged by deer, the tree was planted 1 year ago. Any help to repair the tree and to deter further damage would be appreciated. Thank you Penny

Hello Penny,

I'm happy to help with your deer-damaged maple, but need a bit more information; is this feeding damage, damage caused by antler scraping, or what? What is the extent and nature of the damage? Can you send a photo of the tree?

Sorry for my delayed response, I believe it is antler damage.
