    We have moles and voles here that make huge holes. A neighbors horse broke its leg in one so now before I drive my horse I walk my entire trail and scuff the piled dirt back over the holes and tamp it down.

    We lived in the mountains in a forest before we moved to where we are now so I had never planted a tree before!
    We purchased vacant land to build on with no shade and planted trees. I didn't know that rabbits would gird the trees! I thought my husband had gotten them with the weed trimmer. Had to start over and I encircled all the trees with wire I had. Veggie garden is fenced now. :)

    Great information Gayze. I know alot of people bait rabbits in our area, Ive seen many blind ones and can only imagine what damage that is doing to the animals that feed on the dead ones.

    The biggest help to me so far is keeping the grass low ( by getting more horses WIN WIN) I just need to get some storm water pipe to put around the bases of some trees so they stop stripping the bark.
