RE: speaking of trees... smoke tree/now rabbit problems

Donna: The last little sapling I had that a rabbit ate did die, but it
was chewed off to about 3 inches above the ground...literally nothing
but a stick, like you said. You could try being optimistic and just
leaving it for a while and seeing what happens...stranger things than it
recovering have happened in my garden (like roses I was sure were dead,
dead, dead, making a comeback in June that wasn't rootstock growth!) I'm
always hesitant to give up on a plant in this zone 5 weather...things
are always uncertain at best as to whether something is just taking
extra long to emerge from dormancy or is truly dead, so I'm one who
waits until all certainty tells me something is a goner. Good luck!
