I bought 5 japanese maples in the fall at lowes. The rabbits chewed on 3 of them this winter and they are dying. 2 of the trees are getting shoots on the bottom of the truck(below where the rabbits chewed) and starting to grow. Do you think that i should cut the tree off where the rabbits chewed and hopefull maybe the tree will grow again? Has anyone had any experience with this problem? Thanks for your help.
