Zem, it's not them eating young trees I'd worry about as much as
bucks rubbing their antlers on them and taking off the bark.  I just
saw a young Gingko that had this happen to it; it is dying - no way
it will survive; bark removed from all around it for about a foot in
length.  Bucks seem to like trees with small calipers for their
rubbing - guess that's worse as fall comes and those antlers start
growing, but if I were you, I'd put that chicken wire back on those
guys until they get bigger!
