5 year old buck +
I took a closer look at the pear trees I planted last year. It wasn't good, 5 of the 8 have split trunks. Is there anything I can do to help these. It looks like you could just peel the bark off. I am not sure how anything survives our winters. These trees were under snow for 3 months. I have browse damage 9 feet up in the old apples and my new trees cracked below the snow. I don't think I will be planting anymore fruit trees for a couple years to see if it is possible to get them through these winters. Has any one ever tried wrapping the whole tree through winter in something like burlap.
