My dog has chewed the bark off several of our trees (approx. 3' from the ground). What can I do to repair the damage? Thank you.

There's not much you can do other than protect the tree trunks from future damage by encircling them with wire mesh. If the trees are healthy they will callous over the wounds, providing the damage isn't too extensive. At this point, just place wire mesh around each tree to keep them from further damage. Best wishes with your trees!
