    I assume you are concerned about the health of your boxwood? If the Gophers have been active under the boxwood, it is possible they have removed the dirt around the roots thereby exposing them to air. After deterring the gophers, check where they have been and fill in the tunnels.

    Do you have deer in the area? If the boxwood branches are eaten I would think of deer! My nephew had whole bushes eaten by deer.
