Carmel Courtney asked 11 years ago

All the bark and base leaves of my Laurel Hedging has been eaten. I’m wondering is it rabbits thats eating the bark and leaves? How do i stop this from happening as it looks very serious. The laurel is close to six feet now and i’m afriad its going to kill them.

This sounds like rabbit or hare damage and it can be severe. You will need to place a barrier of chicken wire to keep them out until the laurel grows and the bark thickens.
