Helping apple trees' recovery from heavy deer browse
I'm new to this forum and new to gardening. This year I planted two apple trees, and they were thriving. Then a deer decimated them. eating around 80% of the leaves and all the fruit on one tree, half the fruit on the other tree.
The trees are now fenced off. But what will the effect be on them, and how can I help the trees recover? They were doing so beautifully and I hate to think of there being a long-term impact from this early, heavy deer browse.
Thanks very much,
