Hi, I would like to know if I can save this tree. It's about a 3 year old tree that I planted. I just realized that the bark peeled off and the bark is black. I was wondering if there is anything I can do.

Unfortunately, your tree is near death - without bark, its can't survive. Damage like that usually occurs when the tree trunk is repeatedly hit by a lawn mower bumper or weed whacker.
