I just had to add my 2 cents to this discussion.  We have a number of 12 year old trees, mostly apple, on a variety of rootstocks (from P-22 to seedling) and find that the deer will eat enough branches and bark to kill a tree that is 10 years old.  They have ripped off fairly large branches (size of my arm) of a Gala and killed it. And then the neighbor's Scottish Highland cattle get out, and tear things up good, although theyare more interested when their are  ripe apples on the trees.
