What to do about my damaged tree?
One year ago, my herd of donkeys got into the wrong place and stripped the bark on my white birch tree,which I planted as a seedling. I spent many anxious hours this spring, waiting to see if leaves would appear. They did, and I feel like it is going to live! I painted the trunk with lime, and the rain washed it off. Would it harm my tree to paint it with white water based paint just for looks?
