I have a chestnut apple tree, 40+ years old. Last year, after removing the protective plastic covering that has outgrown its size, the rabbits completely girdled the lower trunk, essentially killing the tree. I would not continue advising owners to abandon protecting the bark, when one of us has experienced disastrous results.
Not really a question,
