    Tree bark stripped 2 feet up, can tree be saved?

    We planted an Autumn Blaze maple last fall. Our puppy got to it and literally stripped the bark off of it (all the way around) from the ground to about 2 feet up. It came off in skinny strips. Can the tree be saved?

    If the bark is ripped completely off all the way around, everything above that point it probably a lost cause.

    Most maples resprout from the base of the existing trunk. If the roots are healthy, this one might.

    I feel your pain... my two dogs have killed or damaged more than one tree seedling/sapling in my back yard!

    I seriously doubt it, but it depends on how badly the tree was stripped. Birch will live if the outer paper bark is ripped away, just leaving an ugly scar. I have not had the same luck with Maple.
