neighbours cat scratching tree

Geraldine Prizeman asked 13 years ago

My neighbours cat has been scratching one of my trees in my front garden and the bark is pretty much gone from the tree now. How can I stop the cat doing this? Does bark need some treatment now? What can I put on tree to prevent it in future? Many Thanks.

Wrap the tree stem  with fine mesh chicken wire, covering the damaged area, leaving enough space for the tree to expand. Cats use a tree to clean claws.
