Protect Your Trees From Deer Rub

Mon, Sep 18th, 2017

As we enter the fall season, it is an important time to take steps to protect trees, especially young trees, against possible damage from "deer rub." This occurs when male deer rub against trees to remove velvet from their antlers. This can cause major damage to young trees as these trees have very thin bark which offers little protection to the tree's vascular system.

One way to protect young trees is to place fencing or barriers around the trunk. Another option is to split a corrugated plastic drainpipe and place it around the trunk. At this year's annual Shade Tree Giveaway, the Shade Tree Commission gave away corrugated plastic pipe to protect the free shade trees that were distributed.
