Rabbit Damage

This image shows an apple tree deep in snow.

The snow is so deep that the rabbits can now gain access to the bark above the spiral guard and as a result the bark has been stripped all the way around the tree.

I have tried trapping the rabbit (there seems to be only one in the garden!) to no avail.

I’ve been using a standard live trap, baiting it with carrots, celery, lettuce leaves, christmas cake and ginger biscuits!! (Not all at the same time!!)

Somebody old me rabbits are partial to aniseed. I’ll try that in the trap next.

If anyone has any tips for trapping I’d be grateful to hear them. I’m looking forward to eating a rabbit curry!

This tree in my hedge line will now need replacing.
