I am attempting to post a photo of my tree---I'm not really good with computers. ha Anyway, if your problem is deer, there is a product on the market that I use and it really works. It is supposedly environment friendly with natural ingredients. It has a rather unpleasant odor but that goes away after it dries (it's a spray) but the deer and rabbits still can detect it, well it works on WV deer anyway. It's also a repellant so they don't taste first, they just stay away. The product is called Liquid Fence and it smells like rotten eggs and garlic. Actually I'm used to the smell now so it's not a big deal. A master gardener friend recommended it to me and I was skeptical at first, then pleasantly surprised. After it is established on your plants it only needs periodic applications. I always reapply after a big rain. good luck
