As Mike explains, male deer rub their antlers on trees to leave their scent and attract a mate. While larger more mature trees may be able to withstand the damage, younger trees can be destroyed by deer.
When planting a new, young tree, Mike recommends wrapping it in fencing or tubing. Once the tree is established, you can remove the protection.
