WILL MY TREE SURVIVE AFTER PART OF THE BARK WAS STRIPPED?
I put baby goats in a pen that is around this five year old ash tree. I noticed this morning they had stripped part of the bark off, near the base of the trunk. Will my tree survive and is there anything I should do to help it recover?

ANSWERS FROM THE INDUSTRY
The damage is permanent. If the bark is removed from less than 360 degrees around circumference of the trunk, the tree has a chance. Wrap the trunk with rabbit fencing or chicken wire.
