It's said that people often do this in an attempt to kill a tree.  I am guessing he wanted those trees gone for some selfish reason and thought he could get away with just girding the trees.

I am wondering if there is a way to save the trees by adding something to protect them, like plaster, or wrapping the trees back in bark, and then wrapping a sheet of some type around the bark to hold it in place?

Let's not mince words. He was murdering trees, which makes him a complete dickhead.

When I was in grade 5, some of us morons decided it would be "cool" to strip some of the bark off a gigantic birch tree at the edge of the school property. We put a noticeable scar in the tree before our teacher caught us and read us the riot act (and explained how horrible what we did was).

I felt terrible, and was terrified that we had killed the tree. But no, that thing continued to grow and thrive. I'd pass by it on my way home from school, even when I went to junior high and high school. Every time I came home from college, I'd make it a point to look in on old Mr. Birch to see how he was doing (and he was always doing well).

Then one time I came home to find that some developers had bulldozed it down in less than an hour in order to make room for some "new, desirable condos".

The bark is effectively the tree's circulatory system.  If I removed your arteries, how would you propose to replace them?  Remember, not only should they move blood around, butn they also have to give blood to every single cell of your body, and the clock's ticking...

Oh god, that's terrible. I'm so sorry.

Maybe they were Bradford pear trees and the man read the Fark thread from earlier.  Nasty, semen-smelling, invasive, garbage trees.  If they were Bradford pears, he should get an award.

Total frame job. We all know it was the murder hornets elites paving the way for their eventual takeover.

Thank you. Ever since that day, I've been extremely protective of large, old, unique trees.

He definitely should've used more lube if he was "stripping bark".
