I had deer damage a few years ago on a young pear tree that was so great I assumed it would die.  I did nothing.  It shot out a "sister" trunk just below the damage and today it is one of the healthiest trees in my orchard. They have a remarkable capacity for self healing.  Good luck.

  I have bark damage on some young trees (apple and landscaping) done presumably by a buck rubbing his antlers.  None of the trees were completely girdled, but some lost lots of bark.  Should I be applying any specific tree dressings etc. to protect and save these trees (which were doing well otherwise).

  thanks for your suggestions
