Purchase a protective stem wrap or guard for winter for trees that are appealing to rabbits and mice. These trees include Fruit trees, Honey Locust, Mancana Ash, some Maples, Lindens, Flowering Crabs and on occasion Green Ash. If deer are a problem, fencing with stucco wire is one solution. Broad shrubs that cannot be stem wrapped may also benefit from fencing. Sprays are also available to deter deer.
